Our long time friends Brian Herbertson (Herbie Homebrew) and Greg Bechtel have combined forces and talent to launch a brewery for the wildly popular pub chain Simmzy's. We hear of both men's tales of how they got into the industry and what it was like to construct a small brewery from the ground up.
