Our team is at the heart of everything we do and every glass that is poured.
Off Main Brewing started in a garage 7 years ago by a husband-and-wife team who had a passion for creating exceptional beer for memorable times. Like any small business, they’ve navigated through many twists, turns and setbacks along their journey. Today, Off Main Brewing has found its home in the beautiful heart of the Texas Hill Country, with a tasting room in downtown Kerrville.
The Off Main Brewing team is comprised of a small, but determined, group of multi-talented craft beer and wine lovers who are on a mission to reimagine the taproom experience while pushing forward the art of craft beer.
Don’t be shy – give these folks a “howdy” next time you drop in or see them around town.
MEET THE BOUTIQUE BREWERY
Laura, a mother to 3 boys #boymom, is at her core a believer. She believes in something greater than the proverbial 9-5. She believes the American Dream still exists, that people are far more capable than they realize, and that there's a craft beer for everyone. Yes, everyone!
Earning a B.S. in Business Management and Marketing from Purdue University, Laura has spent the last 15 years building a career in corporate Marketing, with a focus on digital, social, branding and PR communications. As a strategic and creative thinker, Laura enjoys leading Off Main Brewing's business and marketing strategies.
Most days you can find Laura in yoga pants, working from a comfy place with a toddler nearby and cookies in the oven. She loves champagne as much as she does a balanced IPA - especially if it's served in a pretty glass.
Travis, a husband and father of 3 boys, strives to live each day intentionally and with purpose. He has a deeply-rooted passion for the art, history, science and community of craft beer. As both a beer enthusiast and an award-winning brewer, he believes the best beer is the one carefully crafted and shared with someone else.
Since graduating from Texas A&M with a B.S in Political Science and Masters in Public Administration, Travis has thrived in the corporate world focusing in the areas of contracts, supply chain and purchasing. Though he enjoys his work in the corporate environment, his dream is to create and open a brewpub. As a strategic, detail-oriented go-getter, combined with his background in operations and experience and knowledge of brewing, Travis leads the operations and brewing at Off Main Brewing.
Today, you are likely to find Travis in a Texas A&M t-shirt in the brewery tinkering on a new brew recipe or transferring a finished beer into a keg - all while enjoying his favorite Texas country tunes. While Travis particularly enjoys the traditional Bavarian beer style, he will never turn down a crisp IPA on a warm day, especially if it's shared with a friend!
Niquie, a true adventurer who is always ready to take on the unknown. Whether it’s hiking across West Texas mountains or tackling the task of picking the perfect back porch pint, she believes there isn’t anything that can’t be accomplished with a little bit of grit and a DIY tutorial (or two.)
Having spent her entire working career thus far in the hospitality industry, she’s just about done it all. Lucky for us, she found her niche on the beverage side of things, where she began working in the wine world and discovered her love for craft beer. After scoring a brewing internship, she learned the tricks of the trade, with her fair share of keg washing included. A year later, she’s back to her roots in the Hill Country to spread the beer gospel in our taproom.
If you’re looking for Niquie, go outside. Chances are she’s on a hike with her dog, Olive, swimming in the nearest river, or tent camping next to a (DIY) fire. If you happen to catch her, perhaps y’all can share a nice cold IPA or a glass of Picpoul Blanc (her favorites) and listen to Niquie talk about well…Niquie doing Niquie things.
