Brian started in the restaurant industry when he was in high school, washing dishes for a local restaurant in his hometown Paragould, Arkansas. When he left for college he got a job as a bartender in Fayetteville. After his first year of college he went home to work a summer job at a local bar and never went back. In his twenties, he traveled around the South opening night clubs. When he moved to Austin he continued to work in the bar/restaurant industry, where eventually he met Marcos Canchola. Since then they have opened six places together, starting with Mugshots 15 years ago.
“We want to make great beer for people who enjoy beer. And we want to bring the neighborhood feel of our bars and restaurants to a brewery.” -Brian
