In 1992, Dean Wise made his first batch of beer. Things went well (at least nothing blew up…and the beer was, um, beer) but he wanted something more. Dean went from using a brew kit to creating his own recipes with shocking amounts of the best malts and hops. Some questioned his sanity, but the result was exceptional beer that everyone loved. Having dedicated part of his basement to a brewery, when it came time to name his burgeoning business, Below Grade Brewing was a natural fit. So, enjoy their beers, get to know the brewer and let them know how they’re doing.
