Like many great ideas, Dead Lizard Brewing Company had its humble beginnings in a garage.  Head brewer Richard, a third generation brewer, first brewed with his father and brother (Dell and Scott) more than 27 years ago, and had been sharing his brews with co-workers, friends, and family for years. His passion for brewing and their demand for his beers fueled the transformation of nearly every inch of his garage into an elaborate home-brewing facility with multiple fermenters that were nearly always full with some new recipe. This went on for years until that fateful day when his wife said, "Hey, why don’t we just start a brewery?" Today, DLBC is a family-owned and operated micro-brewery with a 10BBL brewhouse and a tap room featuring 14 different beers.
