Founder & Head of Brewing Operations

Bobby Harl has many passions, but beer runs in his blood. Now, this isn’t to say the Back Pew Brewmaster stumbles around with a BAC that could also be the Richter rating of a small earthquake…it just means crafting beers full of flavor and rich character is what he was meant to do.

While earning his PhD and MBA at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, Bobby also helped brewing mentor Steve Scoville and business mentor Michael Kwas start Little Harpeth Brewing Company. Although his schoolwork may not have done much to further his brewing skills, the mentorship and experience gained at Little Harpeth has helped Bobby learn the ins and outs of his craft.

Now, the prodigal son has returned home. Bobby grew up in Houston, and his vision is to bring the technical knowledge gained at Vanderbilt and the artistry practiced at Little Harpeth together to create Houston’s next legendary craft brewery.
