After spending nearly 20 years in student housing development and operations, Chad knew he had traveled enough and was ready to be home where he could watch his kids grow up and spend time with his wife, Amber. With his diverse background in operations, and his desire to create a business culture that was founded on a single common goal of an overall high quality experience, Chad knew that he wanted to open a brewery that was inclusive, understanding, and community focused. It was through a longtime friendship with Kevin, coupled with a love of craft beer, that Frontyard was born. Frontyard is where Chad now spends his days working on brand development, sales, and the occasional beer sampling.
Although Chad has a love for all things beer; his favorite beers include large body IPA’s, Hazy IPA’s, and Belgian Tripels.
