About Us

Our Story

Brewing Tree Beer Company was founded by the husband and wife team of Mark & Gina Thompson in 2018. We strive to provide a vibe that is authentic, local, and live. The beers are only available at the brewery and the food is hand crafted from scratch. Our roots run deep and we value our customer’s experience. Thank you for being part of what we both call…Chapter 2.
