Three Heads Brewing

The journey begins with Dan Nothnagle. For the past 20 plus years, he has endeavored to try as many great beers from around the world. Dan began to share the beers he had collected with his friends, Todd Dirrigl, Brian Johnson and Geoff Dale. They all seemed drawn to the brews they tried from the West Coast. It occurred to this crew that no one in the Rochester area was making beers of such distinction that the West Coast boasted and the idea to open a brewery was launched. Three Heads Brewing has comprised a perfect combination of talent, friendship, and commitment to great beer. Each of the crew brings a unique ability to the business and has a distinct background. They hope to continue to grow and always make beers you enjoy.
