Meet The Owners, Brewers, & Support Staff

Ryan & Kevin McMurry

Father & son owners who share a passion for brewing award winning beer. 

Ryan brings a lot to the table utilizing both his carpenter and brewing skills.

Kevin brings decades of knowledge in both business and brewing. 

Cathey McMurry

Cathey is 1/3 owner and operator who keeps things running behind the scenes. When she isn't  jumping in to wash dishes and serve customers you can find her handling the day to day operations

Julie Williams

Julie is the daughter to Kevin and Cathey. She is busy behind the scenes keeping us organized and focused. She has also been known to brew some awesome beer, serve up a pint or two, and wash thousands of kegs. 

Shane Williams

Shane is married to Julie. They live in Bellingham, WA with their two children. He has been a valuable addition to the family. Between his skills with tools in the garage to his skills in the brew room we wouldn't be where we are without his help and guidance. 

Matt Mee

Matt is one of our awesome brewers who is also our grocer procuring 

fresh produce for our recipes!

We are lucky to have been able to add him to our "family". 

Meet The Taproom Team



Anna is new to town and loves pizza and beer! So far her favorites are the Hook Tender pizza and Isolation IPA.





Meet Taylor! She is our first taproom employee & quickly mastered the art of making our delicious house made crust for our artisan craft pizzas. She is not only a fantastic employee, but also Kevin and Cathey's niece. 



Meet Shelby! She brings something special to our team. When she isn't working her butt off in the taproom she is at home with her daughter.
