NuBo was started by Dan Satterthwaite and Mike Hochleutner, with the crucial support of friends, family members, neighbors and partners.
Dan, who is our brewmaster, started professionally brewing in the 1990s. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz, where he regularly made beer in his dorm room, he got his brewer's degree from the Siebel Institute, studying in both Chicago and Munich. He did an internship in the Black Forest of Germany, working for a family-owned brewery that's been in operation for more than a century, before returning to California to work for Trumer Pils and Gordon Biersch.
Mike also came to Santa Cruz by way of UCSC. After graduating, he traveled extensively in Europe, and eventually spent two years living and working in Slovakia as a Peace Corps volunteer, supporting the post-communist transition. His love of beer, breweries and Santa Cruz, though, led him to partner with Dan to make NuBo a reality.
