Started in early 2012, Adam Sjogren and Todd Slininger decided to take the plunge from simple (and sometimes not-so-simple) homebrewers to brewery owners. Todd was finishing up his Master’s in Business Administration and decided to quit his Engineering job and become an entrepreneur. Adam was immediately on board. Two weeks later, a business plan was written and the boys were pitching it all over town. Siebel-trained Head-Brewer Tuck Carruthers came on shortly thereafter to become part owner and head- up brewery operations. Northgate Brewing served its first pint in January of 2013.
