While these three careers represented the outcome of doing “the right thing”, i.e. getting an education, establishing a career, working for respectable companies, something was missing. Each of us longed for something more fulfilling, something with more passion, something that was bigger than a paycheck.
It was when Scott and Eric were stirring wort in an open kettle fighting to block the falling leaves out of our brew that the idea of Exferimentation Brewing Company was born. Not long after, Andy joined the team and the brewing increased. A dedicated space was leased where for 18 months we refined our recipes, our business plan, and most importantly, who we wanted to be. When we decided to go “pro” we settled on Pontiac as the place we wanted to make our mark.
It’s important to point out that we didn’t get here alone. We owe a debt of gratitude to our friends who offered to drink our prototypes, for better or worse, and to our families who have supported our effort on this journey.
