I DIDN’T COME FROM THE BREWERY WORLD: the taproom, the events, the bottle releases, in fact, just a few years ago I was wearing an Army uniform.
Way back in 2002 I brewed my first beer with friends. It was horrible! We burned the bag the grains were steeping in, and messed up just about every step you could mess up. But we made beer! In 2011 while in Afghanistan I started envisioning a place our Military and Veteran community could recognize as a place for them. I had no idea of what I was signing up for but that seed planted then grew into a place where hundreds of people of all types of backgrounds would come weekly to have a beer and feel at home. Today you can find me working hard to make beer that honors our Military or trying to keep up with our 4 kids and my gorgeous vegetarian wife. A pitbull and a chihuahua and a reef aquarium as if we didn’t have enough to occupy our time on top of starting a new business.
I’m probably sipping an IPA or trying to perfect my hotdog chili and dreaming of ways I can better serve our Veteran community.
Want to know what gets me up and out of bed bright and early every day? Taking the few resources we have and figuring out how I can be better. If FOB can be the place that reminds you we live in the greatest country in the world and celebrate those who defend this great nation then I’ll consider it a success. We are just getting started.

A lot of people think, I've got a great idea for a business.
But they've never really done what I call personal inventory of who they are. Meaning looking at me, look at all the giftings I have received.
What are you? What are you constantly focusing on what's always on your heart? If your business isn't one of those things, then that is probably not a good business for you. Because if you're going into it just because you think it'd be a good business instead of something you're truly passionate about, and you have to be careful when you say, follow your passion. Because we can all follow our passion but might not make any business sense to do that.
