Became Head Brewer. Brewed lots of beer, some of it pretty good, scoring local and national awards. Five years later, returned to South Mississippi. Worked at a local brewery in Hattiesburg. Made lots of friends. Teamed up with a cool dude that owns a local pub. Plans to make a lot of tasty beer. Hopefully, some of it is pretty good.

Members of The Porter Pub Mug Club can always walk into the pub and expect their personalized mug waiting for them right behind the bar.

How exactly does all this work? Check it out below.
