Bill Shufelt teamed up with John Walker, a highly accomplished and awarded craft brewer who was brewing at Second Street Brewery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The intellectual challenge and the possibility of including a large portion of the adult population in the craft community drove John to join the team. They decided on Stratford, CT as home base and proceeded to brew over 100 batches on homebrew equipment to perfect their process. Once satisfied, they built the entire brewery around it.
