Kraig Weaver
founder & distiller (The Dreamer)
Has an BS in engineering from Colorado School of Mines. Worked in industry for 5 years before founding and running a custom metal and woodwork design and fabrication company. Designed and built breweries, coffee shops, and The Block's tasting room.
Distillation is this beautiful balance of science, art, culinary, and chemistry. Getting nerdy into the details of the operation lets us control the flavor profiles of the spirit. Seeing that spirit go into bottles and then watching our patrons enjoy that drink with each other is the greatest reward we could ask for. Bonding over a good drink.

Security Description

Debt is something, usually money, borrowed by one party from another. Debt is used by many corporations and individuals to make large purchases that they could not afford under normal circumstances. A debt arrangement gives the borrowing party permission to borrow money under the condition that it is to be paid back at a later date, usually with interest.
