Our mandate: Brew Fearlessly. There comes a scary day in every good Craft Brewery’s existence where you give the criticizing eyes looking over your shoulder the finger, and you follow those undeniable instincts that drove you to become a Craft Brewer in the first place. And then, well, that’s when the real story begins! In a dorm room, in a garage, in a basement, in a kitchen – we all started as Beer Hackers. Flying Monkeys’ Founder, Peter Chiodo, learned home brewing as a little boy in Gramp’s Etobicoke basement. Mining his skill as a broke university student in Alabama and even broker grad student in Mississippi, Peter honed his talents and learned to respect beer brewed with hands, not machines. And his passion for local, fresh craft beer grew. Any Craft Brewer worth anything started somewhere as a Home Brewer. We learned the craft, we followed the curve, we invested our All. If a Craft Brewery started solely as a name, a brand, or a business plan, then shame on them. Marketing is not Brewing.
