About The Speaker:
Jonathan Buford, Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company
In 2010, while enjoying a backpacking trip in the Arizona wilderness, Jonathan—who had been hungry for a new career path—dreamed of creating a craft brewery and brewpub. The journey led him to Gilbert, were he successfully completed a Kickstarter campaign, raising $40,000 from backers to begin his new craft beer endeavor. The time it took from home-brewing beer in his garage to building a successful craft brewery was just three years!
