Craft Republic is about changing the game - to embrace the entrepreneurial founders of America’s craft breweries and be an advocate for the quality, innovation, and new ideas they stand for. If it weren't for ingenuity we wouldn't be drinking sour beer from cans right now. The American business renaissance has roots here and I'm excited to see and sell what comes next.

Erica moved to St. Louis with her husband Brian, a Side Project Brewer in late 2016 after hiking the Pacific Crest Trail together. Before her PCT expedition, Erica lived in Chicago for 13 years and was working as a manager and bartender for the Goose Island Brewpubs for 8 of them. She loves a good Scotch, classic literature, a lively political discussion, and hanging with her two cats Tags and Meanie. Oh, and try not to hold her love for the Chicago Cubs against her!
