According to a Facebook post, Tom (center) was a rugby coach in Grandville from 2007 through 2016. He says,

Call it the stars aligning, fate, faith, whatever you believe in.. we’re very excited to be in Grandville and have been welcomed with open arms. It’s more than the brews, it’s about community and collaboration.

His daughter, Carpenter is  a 2015 Grandville grad and D1 competitive cheer state champion. She moved to Arizona to receive a bachelors and masters degree in Global Business.

I can’t say that I ever saw myself moving back to the Grandville area, but the city’s passion for embodying community made the decision incredibly simple. The opportunity to service Grandville and surrounding cities by offering a gathering space that brings in live music, great brews and eventually food will be incredibly rewarding. Plus, I get to do it alongside my Dad which is pretty awesome! We’re so excited to be here!
