"Trust, but verify."
Meet our Daddy, co-owner & financial team leader at Black Narrows Brewing Co. His business savvy and bootstrapping capabilities have made it possible for us to live the dream. A retired Navy officer, he works as a key leader in the government contracting world for Noblis-ESI. A homebrewer himself, he'll split his time between the office and the brewhouse. Without him, none of this would be possible.
