‘We’ve been into making (and drinking) beer for a long time – we’re kind of nerdy scientists about it actually. In late 2013 we decided to start making beer professionally and released a Double IPA that was a little bit hoppy and got some attention. We’re only as successful as the support we receive, so thank you!’
