“Looking back, there was a sense of immediacy, preparation, and luck that all coalesced into Rhinegeist — this little, brawny business-that-could.” – Bryant Goulding, Co-Founder
The Rhinegeist journey starts in 2005. Bob Bonder and Bryant Goulding, consultants together in San Francisco, are working together feverishly to deliver projects that will likely never come to fruition. Both are driven by an appetite to make a lasting positive impact and find a more satisfying way in the world. Bob is writing a business plan for a chain of coffee roasteries and Bryant is diving headfirst into the beer universe, homebrewing on weekends and volunteering at festivals for access to esoteric varieties of free suds. Change is imminent.
Since that hectic summer day, Rhinegeist has grown up quite a bit. We’ve expanded to new states, brewed countless new beers, added a couple hundred employees to our beer family, and built a second home a few blocks down the road in Camp Washington. Each day, however, still feels a bit like that first one — we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring great people together, to foment fantastic ideas, and to build a community that values craft beer and one another. Here’s to many more years of great beer and even better vibes. Cheers!
