Paul Hawley and Remy Martin both grew up in Sonoma County where the redwoods meet the vineyards. They come from winemaking families- both their fathers were professional winemakers and they grew up working in the cellars. The old saying, “it takes a lot of beer to make wine” rings especially true for these long-time friends who have been brewing together since 2004, when they worked the grape harvest in New Zealand. Remy went on to study brewing at UC Davis and they started working on recipes and dreaming of making beer professionally. The first official batch was brewed in 2013 and the taproom opened in February of 2014.
