PBC®: A FEATURED BREWERY
John Nielsen was in craft beer before it was cool—when craft beer was still something of an oddity on the American landscape. The self-professed “chief hose dragger” opened Prescott Brewing Co.® on the Ides of March (March 15) in the year of our beer 1994.
His launch fulfilled a mission of sorts that began in 1974 when he was stationed in the Army in Europe, the craft beer Mecca that inspired more than a few U.S. craft brewers. He’s been studying craft beer ever since.
