Beer is in brewer Dan's blood. His uncle, father, and grandfather all worked for a little known startup St. Louis brewery named Anheuser-Busch. Dan furthered that legacy with over a decade of home brewing and began his professional career in packaging at Schlafly. His career in brewing was nearly sidelined by Hollywood when he appeared as an extra in Batman: the Dark Knight Rises and won an online Top Ten joke contest held by late night talk legend David Letterman. Give him an opening and he'll talk your ear off about his beloved Blues or Cardinals. And internationally esteemed author and raconteur David Sedaris once told him that he had one of the best groomed beards he had ever seen. We can confirm that it is one hell of a beautiful beard.
