Our Team

Evan Rouse

Co-Founder & CPO

Evan started it all. Six years ago after dropping Jake off at Indiana University he stopped at Upland Brewing Company and learned you could brew your own beer. Over the next six years he would transform the garage on Braxton Drive into a fully functioning brewery while amassing dozens of medals. Evan spent just over two years as a professional brewer at Hofbrauhaus where he developed the first IPL in the brewery’s 400 year history.

Jake Rouse

Co-Founder & CEO

An avid craft beer fan, Jake is fired up about reinventing the Taproom, by introducing new and unique ways to enhance the beer drinking experience. Jake’s passion lies at the intersection of technology, beer, and entrepreneurship. After studying entrepreneurship at Indiana University, he’s spent the past 4 years at ExactTarget and Salesforce.com developing Strategic Alliances with companies like Adobe, Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle in an effort to help brands better connect with their customers through digital channels.

Greg Rouse

Co-Founder & COO

Greg purchased Braxton’s first test batching system, and homebrewing kit. Over the past 6 years, he has brewed with Evan in the garage on Braxton Drive. When he’s not brewing, Greg serves as VP of Production Operations at market leading consumer insights firm, dunnhumbyUSA. Greg utilizes over 30 years of industry experience to execute one-to-one personalized communications for more than 55 million households and has two patents pending for process. Greg will be responsible for sourcing, and establishing processes as the brewery grows.
