Friends since high school, business partners for a decade, Bret and Mark foster a mutual love for Quincy, good beer, and Dick Brothers’ Brewery memorabilia. When they discovered this shared interest as well as the fact that one of the buildings was perilously close to foreclosure, they knew they had to act.

Bret Austin has been winning the restoration game for decades in part thanks to his wife Joi, the ultimate consultant. When he’s not dragging her to decrepit warehouses with potential, he’s strategizing with business partner Mark Krogman and his wife, Julie.

The rest as they say, is history; the dynamic duo was born and we get to reap the hoppy benefits (and so much more) for years to come.
