Derek and Mark have been best friends since childhood, meeting in their 3rd grade class with Ms. Asbmeier. Once in college, they discovered a magical elixir that is taking the states by storm, craft beer. And then there was an epiphany of epic proportions, of destiny. Between Mark's brewing skills and Derek's passion for agriculture and business, a new epoch was born, Square Peg Brewerks. Derek's barley will be the base malt, which the Brewerk's will be malting with Colorado Malting Co. Hops will be on the way in coming years from Derek's father's ranch in La Veta.
We all know starting a business is never easy and it can sometimes feel like trying to "fit a square peg in a round hole". We are excited to be apart of the craft brewing community and look forward to sharing a beer with you!
