The Dream was Hatched

1983 – While stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY as a member of the 101st Airborne Division, our founder and Head Brewer, Gary Brown, started to dabble with brewing beer at home.  He is the first to admit that it was about cheap alcohol and not quality in those early days.  It was during Gary’s time in the Ft. Campbell area that a thought of someday opening a “cool” place called Boondocks was born.  This was also when Gary first started to “doodle” a character that would eventually become known as the “Boon Man”.
