Co-Founder, Head Brewer & Finance
Co-Founder, Head of Marketing
We met in 2014 while attending TCU and hit it off instantly. Fast forward five years, we’re now happily married and have four kids (two cats and two dogs, that is). We’re strong believers in the saying “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could” – the only edit we would make is to add Fort Worth specifically. Our community is extremely important to us, and it gives us a sense of pride to officially call ourselves Fort Worth locals.
Our goal is to be a positive force in our community and contribute in the way we know best – providing kick-ass craft beer and a space for people in all walks of life to unwind and enjoy the little things. Maple Branch began as a college dream and we’ve slowly seen it become tangible, whether that’s with our new tap handles, signing our lease, or the hundreds of batches we’ve brewed to make sure we’ve got our recipes just right. As young entrepreneurs it hasn’t always been easy, but for us taking the path less traveled by has always been the only route.
