The Origin Story
There's some debate to when the idea for Two Plumbers came about. If you ask Robert, Nick, or Adam they'll probably tell some different version of the following: It was a dream forged during a road trip in a 1978 VW Westfalia camper to Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Illinois that took place in 2010. Robert clearly remembers telling everyone that we should take our brewing professional, and open up a brewery on one side and arcade on the other.
On the other hand, Nick swears (and Adam agrees) that it was a fever dream brought on from huffing gas fumes from the aforementioned 1978 VW Bus, and that no discussion was made during the Great Middle Coast Beer Tour - outside of which one of us was driving and where we were stopping to eat after the exhaustive list of brewery tours.
The reality is that is probably, partially true. Pair that with John's passion for brewing and attention to detail and Robert's history of video game fandom you start to see where this is going. With both of them getting laid off, a decision was made after much research to put together a plan and go for it.

Our First Boss Fight
There have been some nights with little sleep spent hunched over a computer with a stack of post-its on our desktops while crunching numbers at our new location.
On local zoning for anything related to having a brewery.
And anything to do with beer sales.
You can see where this is going.
