Five years ago, 26° Brewing Co. cofounder Greg Lieberman began making beer as a hobby. Today, the self-taught brewer is making more than 900 gallons per batch at his Pompano Beach brewery, set to open later this week.
“Brewing beer was always a hobby,” says Greg Lieberman at his Pompano Beach-based brewery. “I never thought that one day I would actually open a brewery.”
Like many people in the growing South Florida craft brewing industry, 36-year-old Lieberman decided to follow his dreams. Unlike most people, he left a solid job he loved to pursue his passion project. The former civil engineer says that he enjoyed his chosen line of work, but the desire to brew beer was stronger.
