Meet The Team

Rees Vaughn


Hey! Welcome to, my name is Rees, and I am one of the co-founders here.

I have worked within the service industry for as long as I can remember. Straight out of high school, I worked in a restaurant, moving up to bar work as soon as I was of age.

Working in a bar can really harden you as a person, and this is where I gained my knowledge of beers and beverages, and my passion for craft beer. I would always make it my mission (especially in my youth) to sample all of the beers that we had on offer so that I could make great recommendations to my customers!

But this was just the beginning. As I trained as a bartender, my passion for beer and breweries grew. We would often be sent to the breweries that stocked our beers to try out their offerings, and choose which ones would suit our patrons more.

I was absolutely fascinated by the whole process of brewing, so I made a mental bucket list to visit as many breweries in the states as possible. This is what inspired me to start, with my good friend, Derek.

We would head out on the road together, going on trips to try out different breweries and to find rare, unique, and local beers wherever we went. We decided to make this site to share our experiences, offer recommendations and guidance about which breweries have to be visited by all beer enthusiasts! Now, I own my own bar, with Derek as my chief bartender.

We specialize in selling local craft beers, and popular brands from all over the world, which has made a name for ourselves in the community. We have patrons from all over coming to taste the beers we have on offer.

Here, I will share some of our favorite beers and breweries, so that you can sample them all of yourselves too! I hope that you enjoy our site, as much as we enjoy writing and researching for you!

Hello, I’m Derek! Great to have you here! Rees and I have known each other for years, and have bonded over our passion for beer.

We have shared many drinks together over the years, and come up with wild and wacky ideas for starting our own businesses and sites.

The one idea that stuck with us is starting this website. We wanted to create a place where we could share our favorite craft beers, the greatest breweries around- with the most spectacular flavor profiles and practices.

We still work together to this day, with Rees at the helm of the pub, and me running the bar from day to day.

We continue to share an enthusiasm for beers, and are always looking for new ones to add to our impressive repertoire.

I hope that you will join us at and start enjoying some of the fresh, cool beers that we recommend.
