RENEGADE BREWING TIMELINE
What happens when a burgeoning passion for craft beer meets a well-timed homebrew kit Christmas present…
Khara gives Brian a Mr. Beer homebrew kit for Christmas and the journey begins.
Khara comes home to find that Brian has removed all of the shelving from their refrigerator to put in a keg of beer. In his first of many brewing mistakes, Brian forgot to buy a beer fridge for his new homebrew keg setup. It was corrected with a Craigslist purchase the next day.
Brian skips out on a conference to go to the Dogfish Head brewery. Starts to realize brewing is more than a passion.
Brian reads Beer School by the founder of Brooklyn Brewery and has a growing desire to start a brewery.
Brian completes the business plan for what is then called Journey Brewing Company, and starts the fundraising phase.
A lease was signed on a property at 925 W 9th Ave and the brewery name was formally changed to Renegade Brewing after deciding that the name Journey Brewing didn’t fit our rebellious nature.
