Starting a brewery, the idea sounded crazy to their family and friends back in 2004, but Amy and Rob Cartwright knew what they were up against. They knew the “big guys” brew millions of barrels a year, on automated equipment worth millions of dollars, with super-sized advertising budgets. But Amy and Rob Cartwright had to brew beer, their own beer. And they had to share it with Texas.
