In 2017, we quit our jobs to do something we’ve been dreaming about for the better part of a decade; start a brewery.  We named ours Best of Kin as a tribute to our father who we lost too soon. Our goals are simple: make the best damn beer we possibly can, so we can share it with the ones we love and raise a glass to the ones we’ve lost. We hope you’ll enjoy a pint with us soon.
