THE BRAINS BEHIND THE BREW:
The owners consist of long-time friends, college
roommates, and occasional jousting opponents, Jeremy Knowles and Cory Smith. They are a dichotomy in every
way, including body hair, but it works. Their individual strengths provide balance for one another despite
their natural polarity.
Jeremy is a
professional chemical engineer with a unique perspective on brewing. He is meticulous, calm, rational and cerebral
while being exceedingly passionate about quality and efficiency. Magic happens inside his shiny head and the result
is a beer experience that just might amaze you.
Cory is the explosive constituent. He is
impulsive, reactive, and overly energetic. He never sits, rarely refrains from speaking, and has a complete
disregard for privacy. These qualities give him an edgy personality that can be exceptionally intense at times, but
it’s also the source of his creative talents.
Prior to taking on the appearance of
competent professionals Jeremy and Cory survived many near-death experiences and inflicted irreparable damage on
their bodies as roommates in college. Most of their exploits are unfit for explanation, even on the internet.
Nevertheless, they survived both college and the negative influence they had on one another, and the people of
middle Georgia are better off because of it.
