How did you get involved with owning and running a brewery?
It started as a hobby and evolved from there. At the time I opened there weren’t any other breweries in Dayton, so I figured it would be a great time to be the first and give it a shot. The first day we opened I knew there was no turning back — I was going to make this my career.

If you could change or bring one thing to Dayton, what would it be?
I know you said one but I would love to have two things: a downtown basketball arena that could also host major concerts/events, and a professional European-style soccer stadium. I am a soccer fanatic so that’s sort of a selfish one.

One heck of a cool place to live, work, play, and visit. For me the Midwest is an amazing place to live, and I think we are finding our soul again as a city.
