Following is a brief introduction to each of the three owners at MSB. Each fills a variety of critical roles, and this business simply couldn’t function without each. We’re grateful for the talents each brings, but more importantly, we’re grateful you and the brewing community have enjoyed what we’ve brought to you. Thank you for the support!
