Drätz Brewing Company is owned and operated by Kerry Drake who has been brewing beer for several years developing the passion and skills to make great craft beer. Having a family that originated in Amsterdam, Holland (a region and former province on the western coast of the Netherlands) Kerry is inspired by his family's roots from the old country nestled in between Belgium and Germany as well as being one of the early settlers of the United States taking part of U.S. history.
Our ancestor, Josias Drätz, had immigrated to New Amsterdam, NY in 1661 from Amsterdam, Holland and our Dutch family has been spreading from New York and Pennsylvania to the Midwest as farmers. From the early colonies till today, beer has always been enjoyed by all family members and at family gatherings. We want to provide great beer to our customers as well as invite them into our family. We have great family stories to share along with great beer.
