When I am not with my wife and children (which are my main passion), I love to attend concerts! Phish, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Dawes, Ben Folds, you name it. I love the feeling of live music, and what goes great with a great show, is a great BEVERAGE!
I love collecting memorabilia, everything from brewing, cocktails, concert posters, and local soccer history. I have a love of history, and regularly research everything related to the history of my business, as I appreciate the perspective it gives me for where it is today! I have an extensive collection of Beer Cans dating back to prohibition, including everything from old Ballatine cans to Billy Beer! I like to attend estate sales and look for vintage and rare spirits, sports and beer memorabilia, and anything of local interest.
I love to TRAVEL. I was lucky enough in my early 20's work for a company called Ambassadair Travel Club, which took me all over the world as a Tour Director. This is where I picked up my passion for trying the local beverage, and eventually lead me to into tour the local breweries and distilleries, which has now led me to the beverage industry today.
And of course, I love all things SOCCER. INDY ELEVEN, first and foremost is our local soccer club, as well as a supporter of Manchester United since 1990, and the US National Teams. Soccer is everything to me as I still play, coach, and watch this above all other sports. I support all local Indiana teams and events as well, The Pacers, The Colts, and all things Indianapolis Motor Speedway!
