Meet our Beer Whisperer and Co- Owner, Gary Socha
Gary’s love of exceptional beer began in 1985 in the beer gardens of Munich, Germany. It was there that he first tasted and fell in love with a wheat beer called Hefeweizen. He searched for similar quality in the U.S. but hadn’t found anything until about 6 years ago in a local tap room.
“I thought my quest was over when I found a killer Hefe here in ABQ. I was so excited that my beer needs were finally satisfied. Everything was good, I was happy, until I went to get a growler filled for a host gift…they weren’t filling growlers because they were out of beer!”
It was then and there that he decided to learn how to make it himself. After 100’s of batches and at least 25 revisions to our secret recipe we now have an award winning Hefeweizen. As a mechanical engineer and self proclaimed “beer nerd” Gary loves the art of brewing and sharing his creations with you.
