Spike’s Story

“I founded what would become Spike in the basement of my college apartment over a decade ago. What started as a side hustle to make a little extra beer money on weekends has grown into a company and team that I couldn’t be more proud of.

I’ll never forget a story a customer once told me. He was in the process of getting his equipment set up for his next batch when he saw his daughter’s eyes light up as she proclaimed, “It’s Brew Day!” She knew Brew Day meant something special. Friends were coming over; the grill was about to be fired up and plenty of fun was in store.

That’s what the business of brewing is all about. We’re not just here to provide you with the best equipment (I mean we are, but it’s more than that!) rather we want to provide you with the best Brew Day ever — whatever that means to you!

So from our team to yours, let’s raise a glass and celebrate everything that makes Brew Day something to look forward to time and time again.”
