I love being a beer nerd. If you’re one, too, you definitely get that special something about the complexity of this simple beverage that snags unsuspecting people into its web. When the craft beer bug bites, it hits people in many different ways, and some people are more drastically affected than others. That’s basically the way that Utah’s newest brewery, 2 Row Brewing Company, came about. In a short five years, founder Brian Coleman went from a casual beer lover to a “beer baron.” Now we get to reap the benefits of his obsession.
