It all started as a hobby during Seth’s college days and was revitalized when he received a home-brewing kit as a gift. After seeing Mayor Luke Feeney give a speech about the revitalization of downtown, Seth moved back to Chillicothe with the hopes of opening a brewery with his friends. This resulted in them spending countless long days tweaking recipes and stirring kettles to serve to their friends and families. They both felt a responsibility to give back to the community that raised them by sharing these moments they’ve been able to create for those close to them with the entire Chillicothe community.
Seth is a science test developer and the son of a local science teacher. Justin is a musician and self-professed computer nerd. The marriage of their technical processes and artistic thinking has ultimately resulted in something really special that they're excited to share.
