#19 Charlie Sturdavant of Golden City Brewery and Lhakpa Sherpa of Golden’s Sherpa House Restaurant: Golden City Brewery Goes to Nepal

Our guests and several partners have spent the last 20 months building a brewery that will not only bring craft beer to Nepal, but will also provide well-paying jobs.

The country of Nepal is beautiful and attracts visitors to the Himalayas to both climb and trek. It also is a study in contrasts, as a Third World country striving to modernize despite low per-capita income.
