Our story is not to different from other silicon Valley start up stories. In July 2008, we were celebrating Jenny’s birthday and giving her boyfriend (and future husband) a hard time about his dedication to a watered-down national brand of beer. Jenny and Drew asked, “Why not brew and sell session beer that tastes good?”

Fast-forward to 2011 and our first Session Series-Blonde, Brown, Porter and Wit started rolling of the line. Later that year we added an IPA, Imperial Red, and Stout to the line-up. Today we brew and service our beers out of our warehouse taproom in San Jose, California and sell to over 13 California Counties with customers that include: Safeway, Costco, Bev Mo, Sprouts, and Whole Foods.
