Long story short:

Years ago, knowing I deeply disliked my then career (advertising) I decided to pursue my love of American Craft Beer and homebrewing.

I became a brewer in a fairly large local microbrewery. Eventually I quit to open my own brewery.

I am now in the process of building out that microbrewery here in the NYC area (Astoria, Queens).

We've got a website up. I hope you'll take a moment to visit and let me know your thoughts, hopes, etc.

Drink it loud y'all!

Don't hate me! If you knew the challenges and reality of opening a microbrewery, you might not be jealous. It certainly is not for the faint of heart.

Good luck to you. Im sure it is hard work, but hard working for yourself doing what you love beats hard working for the man every time!
Cheers
