Who We Are

In a small Kentucky town there was an auto shop where old men sat and played cards all day. In this "dry" county, beer was hard to come by, but come into this auto shop with a thirst, and ask for a dozen apples, and you left with a 12 pack of suds. This was a lesson in how to provide people with what they want, while creating a lifelong buzz.
