Greg York, Brewery Operations
Greg and his friend John started brewing beer in a college apartment in 1999. The first beer, an American Cream Ale from a kit, turned out great from the first pfft! of a properly carbonated bottle opening. He was hooked. At the end of their last year in school, Greg took the kit and kept brewing, getting more adventurous and learning more about the history and science of brewing along the way. Like so many homebrewers (and probably after one too many homebrews) he decided that opening a commercial brewery was a great idea, and in the budding craft boom, he founded Rustic Road Brewing Company in 2012. Favorite Rustic Road beer: Portside Pumpkin (robust pumpkin porter)
Chuck Nelson, Business Operations
Chuck started out as a "less filling, tastes great" beer drinker. A few years ago, he started to expand his beer palate when a friend introduced an IPA. From then on he was hooked and now is always searching for new flavors in beer. Chuck joined the Rustic crew in March of 2018, bringing his 30+ years of business and logistics experience. Chuck is excited about the direction of Rustic Road Brewing Company and looks forward to sharing the many great beer flavors not only in Kenosha and southeast Wisconsin but through the midwest and beyond.
