Baker, Co-Founder

Bryce is the only non-native Texan and hails from the land of Dorothy and Toto. After earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, he moved to Houston to work in the oilfield for 11 years. Once craft beer and home-brewing turned from a hobby to an obsession, the only logical next step was to open a brewery.

Handojo, Co-Founder

Jeff is one of those rare creatures facing extinction: a native Houstonian that still lives in Houston. Having left the University of Houston-Downtown with a degree in computer science and later an MBA from UH-Central, Jeff decided to torment his wife even more by starting a brewery. His love for beer is only exceeded by his ability to talk too much.

Moss, Co-Founder

Brandon grew up in a small Czech community in Texas with more kolache bakeries than bars and grocery stores combined.

Reichert, Sales

When James won our Hipster Sauce Tricycle Race, we just HAD to hire him. We then found out he makes one of the best Old Fashioneds on the planet, and it's been a bromance of epic proportions ever since. Lastly, as our resident brute he even works out, brah.

Victor is that one guy you can't ever get mad at no matter how hard you try, so he's a perfect fit for our taproom. Born and raised in Northwest Houston, he's a huge Manchester United fan even though the rest of us can't stand them. Okay so maybe we get just a little mad at him.

Schickel, Taproom

We've had our share of folks come through here from the Eastern US, but Siena wins by virtue of hailing from Ithaca, NY. In addition to having a decidedly non-New York accent, Siena is a super-social people-person. This make us wonder if she's really from New York, or if she was sent here to keep us out of trouble.
