Cousins Who Kick Ass Together...

Today my phone is blowing up. My family--forgetting that Facebook is a thing--has been trying to get a hold of me to tell me about this article that ran in the Daytona Beach News Journal. What is so special about this article? It's about my cousin Justin, his partner Cliff, and their plans to open a nanobrewery in my hometown. The Ormond Brewing Company will begin brewing in a few weeks and will open after, when they get their license to brew.

Justin is the oldest in our family and has a laundry list of talents and hobbies, but he isn't the only one of the cousins kicking ass. My other cousin, Graham, has been passionate about music his whole life and is actively pursuing a music career in New Orleans. In fact, he and his girlfriend's band, Daria & The Hip Drops, plays all over the southeast--Ryan and I were even able to catch them at the Tropical Heatwave Music Festival here in Tampa! And, as you know, with the help of my friend Evan, this cousin has launched her own cottage food business. Although Max and Jonah's is a part-time hobby more than anything, I'm proud to be doing something I love and I'm glad that my cousins are doing the same.

If you want to try some of Justin's beer before the grand opening, you can taste it this Saturday, September 28th, at the King of the Grill Contest in Ormond Beach. Like them on Facebook here.
