My past life was in business planning and negotiations for an Oil Behemoth. My wife, Kathryn, and I decided to take the leap into beer so that we could do something we’re proud of. Our brewery is quintessentially independent. We’re owner-operated and self-distributed. We’re not built to sell or even to grow. Using our own name means we’re inextricably linked to our product. We have a lot of skin in this game, and we love it.
