Co-Founder & Director of (h)Ops
Chris is a St. Joseph, Missouri native (since 10 years old). Along with his brothers Bart and Joe, Chris founded Basic City Beer Co. in Virginia. His brothers and him managed all aspects of the start-up and operations and Basic City opened to immediate acclaim. After some years as Director of (h)Ops at Basic City Beer, Chris returned to St. Joseph to open River Bluff Brewing since his hometown had no operating local brewery at that time. Before becoming a successful craft beer brewery owner-operator, Chris was a homebrewer and rafting guide turned business developer after college for start-up operations of passenger rail systems throughout the United States.
