Chris loves his family, craft beer, and playing golf with the other neighborhood dads. Chris holds a BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration from CSU. After college, he had a short stint as a professional golfer on the Golden State Tour until he suffered a career ending shoulder injury while snowboarding. Reinventing himself, Chris started a graphic design/branding company. After five successful years, Chris was bored of sitting at the computer and decided to challenge himself by standing in front of the easel. Chris painted large scale landscapes, cityscapes, and eventually commissioned portraits. The life of a gallery artist was fun and exciting until the market crash of 2008. When his patrons no longer had expendable income to purchase art, Chris, again, hit the refresh button and found his true passion… craft brewing.

Born and raised on the mean streets of the northwest Chicago suburbs, where he cut his teeth at an early age deep into a hardcore passion for the Blues. Kevin launched the first of a thousand steps in his journey towards the pursuit of the ultimate vinyl record collection, a well-made taco, and a well-crafted ice-cold can of beer. What a long strange trip it has been! From the snowcapped peaks of the Rocky Mountains where Kevin attended Colorado State University, to navigating the Brigantine schooner "Varua," from the isle of Kauai to the port of Sitka, Alaska; Kevin eventually found himself beer in hand, on the Texas Gulf Coast where he would graduate Aggie ’95. After hauling America’s backbone of iron ore across the Great Lakes, Kevin’s entrepreneurial spirit would lead him back home to the cool beer flowing streams of Colorado and America's purple mountain’s majesty.
