Homebrewing Hobby to a Booming Brewery Business

Burley Oak Brewing owner Bryan Brushmiller, turned adversity into opportunity after losing his job during the 2008 recession. As craft beer movement dawned in cities and towns across America, he decided to transform his homebrewing hobby into a career and opened the first brewery on Maryland Coast’s in 2011.
