Three engineers walk into a bar, then another bar, and…a few more bars after that. Isn’t that how all great stories start?
Their names were John English, Dave Genson and Jason Vogel. They were a trio of professional puzzle solvers by day and beer brewing scientists by night. Every week, happy hours turned into weekends inside a garage where they fixated on yeast and barley.
With engineering backgrounds, it was only natural that deconstructing beer into its basic elements ignited their passion. They became consumed by the art behind the craft as they poured hours into creating new IPAs, pilsners, and stouts that exceeded their own high standards.
By 2013, a small brewery had developed in Dave’s garage (much to the chagrin of his wife and family). Friends and neighbors came by to sample the mad scientists’ creations and were amazed! Who knew these pencil pushers could concoct a craft beer of such quality? Yet they did, and their hobby became a business in 2016 as they opened the doors of Bone Hook Brewing Company.
