The name came from friends in Massachusetts. Because our house was so far away from everyone we were named the Out.Haus. When I started labeling my homebrew, that was the name I decided to use.
I quit my full-time job on Friday, January 13, 2012 to focus all of my time and energy in creating a commercial brewery. After looking at various locations and out-buildings on the property I finally decided to convert part of the garage to the brewery.
On June 28 I finally got approval from the town to convert the garage. In July of 2013 I got a Certificate of Occupancy for the brewery from the town. On October 21, 2013 I got my federal approval. On November 8, I got my state approval. I have a fully licensed brewery.
