Friends and business partners, Gavin Maus and Aaron Hetz are natives of the Erie area who came into the business with varying degrees of experience in brewing and distilling. While Aaron was racking-up experience working in the restaurant and brewing industries, he also dabbled in whiskey distilling at his home in Lyons, Colorado. And Gavin, a sales engineer for a local company in a past life, started honing his skills as a homebrewer in his mid 20s. Both of the guys enjoy playing music, boating, camping and hitting up music festivals and concerts whenever possible.
Their wives, Heather Maus and Megan Hetz are both serving the Erie community as registered nurses while performing different roles within the business.
Both families currently live in Fairview and have children enrolled in the Fairview School District
