Multi-tasking, connected, and tech-savvy are all terms used to describe the quintessential Millennial. So who are we? We are two Millennials who have a dream. No different than all the generations before us, we seek to make a difference. To make an impact on the world through creating a one-of-a-kind community of beer lovers. We pair passion with a strong work ethic and technology to create a singular craft beer and member experience.
Founder – Brewmaster
I am a true Millennial at heart, to the point where I got tired of hearing about it and named the brewery Millennial Brewing Company. By day, I’m a twenty-something IT professional, but by night I’m a mad-scientist with a taste for barrel-aged anything. Most days you can find me at the beach, on my sailboat, or brewing up something special on my Frankenstein of a home brew system. Famous brews include an Imperial Stout brewed with a whole birthday cake, a deliciously spicy Habanero Pale Ale, and a decidedly Floridian Honey and Orange Blonde Ale.
A product of the Show-Me State, I grew up on a 40-acre farm in a town of 1,500 people. Today, I’m a husband and soon-to-be father of three. I call Fort Myers home and have decided to put my own special stamp on the exploding craft beer market in Southwest Florida. Underneath the beard and hipster t-shirts is a hard working farm-boy ready to make my mark by proving that being a Millennial isn’t always a bad thing.
Founder – Business Operations
I’ve loved beer for as long as I can remember. Once I paired up with a skilled brewmaster, everything fell right into place. I served our country for five years as a Sergeant in the USMC right outside Washington, DC. I followed that up with 10 years of being immersed the SWFL business market, making connections, and helping people. All of my previous experience with leadership and business lead me right into starting Millennial Brewing.
I was born in Sandusky, OH (home of the famous Cedar Point) and moved to SWFL when I was six years old. I have always loved Southwest Florida and appreciate it more each day. I enjoy golfing, boating and hanging out at the beach with the family. I have a wonderful wife, Amber, and two beautiful children, Kyle Jr. and Amelie. They are my motivation, my everything and my hope is to create something that they will be just as proud of as I am. That’s why Millennial Brewing exists. To create more than just a group of “regulars” that hang out at the brewery, to create a singular community of members that are just as committed to the brewery and the art of brewing as we are. In that way, and as a direct result of its members, Millennial Brewing will be unlike any other brewery in the world. We are so excited to share our dream with each and every one of you.
