Swag Brewery | Craft Beer Gifts

Swag Brewery was founded in early 2012 by two Minnesota-born, beer-obsessed recent college graduates who decided they’d rather drink with “the man” than work for him. Their goal is to design and produce swag that helps beer lovers squeeze beer into every corner of their lives 

Max, the partner responsible for business operations, graduated from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management in May 2011 with a major in Entrepreneurial Management and a minor in Spanish Studies. He’s insanely passionate about beer (and likes to brew it) but also spends time doing other things like fishing, shootin’ guns, and tap dancing. What’s in his fridge right now? Three Floyds Gumballhead, Widmer Brothers Drifter Pale Ale, and Surly Abrasive

Colin, the creative director, graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in May 2011 with a BFA in Graphic Design. What’s he drinking? Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, and Lagunitas IPA

Late to the party was Brett, “the web guy,” who also graduated from the Carlson School of Management. He particularly enjoys fishing and camping in the mid-western wilderness. What’s in his fridge beside a few home brews? Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Bigfoot® and, of course, Surly Furious

Mari, arguably the most interesting of the crew, sketches, doodles, and colors lots of our things to make them look nice. She's Minnesota-trained and although we haven't convinced her that beer is worth dedicating her life to, we keep her around because we find her obsession with steampunk themes and Disney toys rather endearing.

Stephanie, the wisest of everyone here, is our trade show and wholesale guru. She prefers wine and weimaraners over beer, but will occasionally crack open a cider or sour brew. If you're one of our retail merchants, there's a good chance you've chatted with Stephanie - and if you've chatted with Stephanie, you will definitely remember her!
