About Brewer Jeffery Paul Hyder

As a kid you couldn't get Jeffery Hyder to shut-up about his great "Grampa Gill" and his moonshine escapades. Then in 1978, Jeffery, Larry (Jeffery's father) and Andrew (Jeffery's brother) built their own alcohol still and brewed "something" from the huge supply of orange trees growing wild, down near the swamp on Lake Monroe. While the results were questionable, the lore lived on. In 2009 Jeffery got serious into researching the family brew - after his wife suggested that if he brewed his own beer "it might save us some money". Nearly a million dollars later, Hyder started brewing the finest brews the family had ever tasted. This fine brewery, is a wee culmination of our legacy. We hope you enjoy it as we have/do/are.
