Josh Hare has long been an advocate for environmental stewardship and community engagement. In 2011 Josh built Hops & Grain Brewing from the ground up in Austin, TX with the intent to a community space in east Austin that the neighborhood could be proud of. Since then he has overseen the day to day operations of the brewery, growing production from a meager 600 barrels of beer in 2011 to over 8,000 barres of beer in 2018. In 2016 Josh helped co-found Pint & Plow Brewing in Kerrville, TX and continues to provide oversight and management of the brewing operations. When Josh isn’t working at one of his breweries you can find him down at the state Capitol fighting to advance the legislative rights for Texas growing craft brewing industry or out riding his bicycle.
