Huff Brewing Company near Bellville exists because Ryan and Christine Huff love the beverage industry.
“We really like traveling to different places, tasting what other brewers are doing and mastering the nuances of the business,” Ryan said. “If we’d just been looking for a way to be our own bosses, I suspect we’d have picked something where we didn’t have to work so hard.”
And, while the craft brewery is a more than full time job, it is their avocation, not their full-time profession. Currently, Ryan works in the energy industry and Christine is a banker.
“We’re fortunate that our bosses allow us maximum flexibility,” Ryan said. “And let me be clear, we enjoy what we do professionally, but we really, really love brewing beer.”
