Meet the BrewChefs

They’re operators—big thinkers, really—who retrain the way the rest of us think about things. They have unwritten formulas that make them unique and wildly successful—diverse plates and local pints, amazing fries and over-the-top burgers, dollar bills on the walls and dollar pints on Mondays. They are few, but magnificent. We call them BrewChefs.

James Slack

Dan Carter Owner/Oporator Galloway Grill Springfield, MO

Garry Boyd Ringleader Hopcat Grand Rapids, MI

Garry isn’t afraid to do things differently. He believes as long as you have the best beer selection and amazing food, guests will have the kind of experience that builds loyalty. See how Garry and his legendary “Crack Fries™” have turned HopCat from a craft beer bar into one of the upper Midwest’s most decorated regional chains.
