Our founder Jonathan didn’t know it at the time, but his love for craft beer and Arizona were soon to combine and change his life forever. As he pursued a career in landscape photography, his sole mission to showcase his love for Arizona in each photograph. One fateful day while hiking, Jonathan crossed a sign signifying “Entering a Wilderness Area”. It clicked and he couldn’t stop thinking about that sign as he sipped a delicious craft beer after his hike. Soon after, Jonathan harnessed his passion and then took his idea to paper. Then began the quest to start Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co.
