Forrest was born and raised in Austin, Texas. How many people can say that these days? His culinary degree combined with genetics – by way of his cooking, competitive and inspiring grandmother – made Forrest what he is today. So, after a brief stint as a repo man, Forrest shifted gears and became a cheese and beer monger and corporate manager for one of America’s best-known, natural grocery chains. With distant family hailing from the Ozarks, Forrest remains quite confident that his family tree includes some strong distilling roots, too. He’s also our in-house Kevin Bacon, as our founding distilling team all came together under the Allen home brew roof. And, we’re willing to bet, you’re only one to six degrees removed from him, too.
At Revolution Spirits, Forrest has turned a passion for brewing and distilling into a full-time jobby (That’s a hobby and a job. What did you think we meant?).
