Cross-Eyed Owl Brewing Company

Cross-Eyed Owl Brewing Company One evening Trey was sitting around the table, playing poker with the boys when his brother-in-law suggested they try something different and make beer one weekend. The boys decided to call themselves the Four Fat Men (4FM) Homebrew Club and gathered at Erin and Trey's for a BBQ/Brewday to celebrate Trey's birthday. That first beer (a coffee stout) was so bad they poured it out. The second beer (a brown porter) was only a little better, but it was good enough. Trey was hooked and began absorbing and learning everything he could about this new hobby that quickly became a passion. Fast forward a few years, and Trey was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Surgery successfully removed the tumor. While he sat in the chair receiving his first chemo treatment, he turned to Erin and told her he wanted to open a brewery. "life is too short, I have to do something with it. I want to do something for us, for our family." Carrying around the chemo pump in a fanny pack, Trey and Erin met with Decatur city officials and took a guided tour of the city trying to scout locations. They both noticed one building in particular they thought would be perfect. Fast forward a few more years and they have crafted their brewery in that same building. It was a long and challenging road to get to this point, but Erin and Trey have realized their dream, and they can't wait to share it with you.
