the story of us

We are a husband-and-wife team, a rogue and a rebel, a dreamer and a doer, a beer drinker and a cocktail shaker, a magazine lover and an entrepreneur, a Bay Area native and an adopted one, a lover of stories and a sucker for inspirational start-up tales. We are both in love with the Bay Area, Northern California (heck, the whole state really), and the people who call this home. We are discovering the joy of home-brewing (a lager, a stout, and an IPA so far), and are experimenting with a limoncello recipe (have to do something with all of these lemons, lol).

We are inspired by and in awe of those who looked for something they couldn't find, and decided the best way to meet their need was to make it themselves, in the process creating something — wether it be beer, spirits, cider, or mead – that brings joy to many. We follow your lead.

ABV magazine rose out of the awareness that with all of the amazing things happening in our craft beverage community, there was no magazine dedicated to our cause, to champion these achievements, to showcase not just the variety and quality of the booze, but the hard-working, dedicated, intensely passionate men and women   behind each glass, bottle, and barrel that we enjoy so much.

This is our story. What's yours?
