Our family passion for brewing craft beer initiated with a Christmas gift for Roel. He took this “Make Your Own Beer Kit” and creatively mixed the ingredient and added some of his own. The beer was sabroso (tasty). Roel’s passion for brewing beer, as well as his creativity, grew and so did our curiosity for the flavor of his next brew.
The second key to Compadre Brewing was Roel’s ability to convert me from the boring watered down beers that my father and I drank to the craft beer that I currently love. It only took a few months and a few brewery tastings of all types of beer styles to realize his passion for craft beer became mine. This quality time I spent with my son was a blessing and I thank him so much for this introduction to creative craft beer.
