JRH Brewing started as most breweries do, a home brewery with passion.  I got interested in brewing as a high school student during a field trip to Busch Gardens.  While other students were studying the physics of the roller coasters, I was engaging in the magic of the brewery tour.  I brewed my first batch of beer in college and to say the least, I didn’t see a future in brewing, so I pursued a career in medicine.  I worked as a Physician Assistant, PA, for the next several years and realized something was missing from my life, BREWING!  I started home brewing again in 2009, and the rekindling of a hobby quickly turned into a passion.  A series of life-changing events forced me to realize that I needed to pursue my dream of opening a brewery.  Along with my wife, Jill,  we set out to make this dream a reality.  “Life is short, don’t wait for the things you want to do”, this became our motto.  I started brewing more often, reading more books, and honing my craft.  We started taking “beercations” hitting every craft brewery we came across and taking notes of how we wanted JRH Brewing to be portrayed.  I graduated from the American Brewers Guild in 2013 with more knowledge and enthusiasm to brew great craft beer.

JRH Brewing is now open at 458 West Walnut Street in Johnson City, TN.  The brewery is more than just a great place for craft beer; it is a place to inspire others to follow their own dreams and celebrate their accomplishments no matter how big or small.  Look forward to seeing you there!
