The Modern Revolutionaries: The Beer Research Institute
From The Beer Research Institute's story:
"Not everyone knows our story. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, there’s a chance you’ve heard it. At least some of it…
Like so many great American success stories, ours began in a garage. Let’s jump in the time machine and go back to the winter of 2005. I received a gift card for Christmas and immediately took it down to the local homebrew shop to purchase everything I needed to brew my first batch of beer. It was horrible but I drank every drop and it sparked a passion that I knew I would pursue. After a couple of humbling batches of beer, Greg came over and jumped in on the brew days. We were both hooked. We sought out every book we could, followed every beer blog and pod cast that was available. We joined our local homebrew club and continued to make as much beer as our schedules allowed. Through the process, like every homebrewer, we kept refining our process and adding equipment to make our brew days more efficient. Then, little by little, we started making better beer. Ultimately, the hobby was challenging and fun. If you know anything about us, you know we like to have a good time. About the only thing we take seriously is our craftsmanship and our brand."
