Tell us about yourself

Prior to WWII, my grandfather's family owned a brewery that was confiscated by the Nazis, and his entire family was murdered in the camps. He tried to recover the brewery but never did, and when he passed, I wanted to build on this family legacy.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Keeping our doors open for over 11 years and building an amazing team of talented professionals that I respect to help build my vision.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

They're all hard.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Believe in yourself, don't worry about the haters, and realize that no one cares about your problems - work harder.

Where can people find you and your business?
