Owner/Business Manager

Born and raised in Ocean City, MD, Suellen has always had a love for the beach and surfing or boogie boarding. She graduated from Stephen Decatur High School and pursued her dream to become a dentist. While traveling and being educated in other states she developed a passion for all different kinds of craft beers. Once settling back in Salisbury and having stayed in touch with her best friend of many years, Lori, they both started homebrewing together with the dream of one day opening a brewery. Today, Suellen and Lori are living that dream and are the only female owned brewery to their knowledge.
