Few concepts are as old as beer and fatherhood. This story starts in 2009 in small town Ontario, with four hockey dads and their four hockey sons. Artist, entrepreneur, corporate exec and maverick, they gathered around a shared love of the hand crafted and authentic, and a vision of producing high quality craft beers that could combine artistry and accessibility.
Add a whole lot of time spent together in rinks and on soccer pitches, experimenting over stove tops, planting hops and touring microbreweries around the world, and slowly, things began to brew. That friendship, like our craft beers, is based on a simple formula: stand up 4 each other, stand up 4 something bigger than yourself and stand up 4 the antiquated notion that quality craft beer matters.
