ABOUT US

WE (BRIAN & CARLY) MET ON A BLIND DATE IN 2009. WE WENT TO A TRENDY RUM BAR. AFTER A FEW $12 DRINKS, FANCY INTERIORS, MEDIOCRE CONVERSATION, EVERYTHING WAS… WELL… FINE. WE GOT UP TO PART WAYS AND BRIAN MENTIONED HE WAS OFF TO GET SAUSAGE AND BEERS AT TORONADO (A GRITTY BAR KNOWN FOR SERVING THE BEST BEER IN TOWN. PLINY? YES PLEASE!).

CARLY SURPRISED HIM BY ENTHUSIASTICALLY JOINING. THE NEXT FEW HOURS WENT BY IN A FLASH. AND WE’VE BEEN INSEPARABLE SINCE.

OUR SHARED LOVE OF BEER AND THE CASUAL, FUN COMMUNITY THAT BEER CREATES INSPIRED US TO BEGIN HOMEBREWING AND THEN DREAM OF OPENING OUR OWN BREWERY. SIX LONG YEARS, THREE SMALL APARTMENTS, ONE 2007 HONDA FIT LATER, WE’RE DOING IT!
