Our story is not too 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 watered-down national brands 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 our beers out of our warehouse taproom in San Jose, California and sell around the Bay Area and Southern California.
