The Brewery

Watermark Brewing Company came together in a rather short amount of time;

Chris and Justin met through a mutual friend days after moving from Chicago over to Michigan in the summer of 2014 and began their homebrew journey. Days after the first batch, David was brought into the mix as him and Chris met while sailing on Lake Michigan one summer evening. Dave was wearing a Bell's Brewery shirt and explained his background in Chemistry. Chris, Justin and David have been brewing beer with one another as long as they've known each other.
