Founded in December, 2011, by Adam Watson and Justin Taylor, two friends who met at college and bonded over their love for good beer. After college, Adam and Justin took this love for beer one step further and started brewing together. For the next three years, Adam and Justin balanced their day jobs, their growing families, and their passion for brewing. Justin focused on brewing. Adam managed sales, deliveries, and the business side of the brewery. All profits went back into Sloop, as they slowly expanded from farmers’ markets, eventually into restaurants, bars, & craft beer stores. With the humbling support of the Hudson Valley community, Sloop has been able to grow & raise the necessary capital to finance their expansion into a full-scale microbrewery.
