Jim’s inspiration for his business: Owning a brewery has been a dream of mine since the early 2000s. I have been brewing my own beer for over a decade, yet it wasn’t until I met my partners (Craig Johnson and John Westcott) a few years ago that this dream could become a reality.

How Saint Rose helped Jim’s career: Seeing my business blossom has been incredible. I’m proud to have founded it in the city where I received my undergraduate degree from Saint Rose.
