7 December 2014 by , No Comments

We heard a female voice call out,”are you the people we’re looking for?” as we stepped through the door of the 4th & Gill apartment building. “We sure hope so!” was our reply.

It’s hard to believe that it has been almost a year since my wife and I met Christian Spears and Garr Schwartz as we got a sneak peak of the then under construction brewery.
