Josh started where most brewers start… as a home brewer. Growing up in Ohio there was very little in the way of craft beer selection. Undeterred, Josh decided to start making his own. After learning the basics through kits, he decided to start developing his own recipes. People really liked Josh’s recipes. Having managerial experience and having always wanted to own his own business, the idea of a brewery seemed like an interesting one. Josh graduated from engineering school and moved to Connecticut for work. Connecticut proved to have a much greater offering of craft beer, including local breweries. Josh became one of the founding members of The Fermenters of Central Connecticut (FOCCT), a home brewer’s club based out of Brew and Wine Hobby in East Hartford. The stars seemed to keep aligning themselves in ways that encouraged the idea of a brewery. After four years of planning, the brewery is finally starting to become a reality.
