About Us

ANDY TVEEKREM, BREWMASTER

I GREW UP IN Akron.

WHERE I DAYDREAMED OF blimps.  There was always one floating somewhere overhead.

WHY I LOVE CLEVELAND. Our fair city, where people truly appreciate the art of brewing.  And I truly can appreciate the diversity and character of its many great neighborhoods.

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT WHAT I DO.  I get to brew the kind of beer that I really enjoy and I get to work with an amazingly talented group of people.  It’s the best environment I’ve ever seen.

WHEN I’M NOT WORKING, I like spending time with Vickie, my wife and the love of my life.

BILLY CROMPTON, KITCHEN MANAGER AT NANO BREW

I GREW UP IN Cleveland.

WHAT CLEVELAND MEANS TO ME. Home. Family. Music.

I’M EXCITED TO BE A PART OF MGB TEAM.  Because I get to do a ton of different things, but I mostly get to pursue my passion of cooking for people.

WHY I LOVE MY WORK. I create the menu and cook at a very cool place.

WHEN I’M NOT WORKING. I play music.

AND THAT WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT NANO, THEY’LL TALK ABOUT the ‘Little Bar That Could…And Did!’.

FAT BOB, WAREHOUSE GUARDIAN

WHERE I GREW UP: Ohio City

HOW I GOT MY NAME. Brew master Andy calls me ‘Fat Bob’ and it stuck… But I prefer the more formal ‘Plump Robert’.

WHY I CAME TO MARKET GARDEN BREWERY. Sam and Andy came to the Animal Rescue Center and I decided they need rescuing.  Trouble agreed with me and came too.

HOW DO I LIKE WAREHOUSE LIVING. Well, let me tell ya, that cage at the APL was pretty dinky compared to this place. Food’s better too!

LOUNG UNG, PARTNER/FOOD& BEER TASTER

 I GREW UP IN Cambodia & America.

MY FAVORITE MGB BEERS: I have many favorites. The first one I fell in love with was  Andy’s scotch ale–Wallace Tavern.

WHAT I DO AT OUR RESTAURANTS AND BREWERIES.  I’M a food & beer taster.  It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.

WHEN I’M NOT WORKING, I write books, garden, and ride a tandem bike with husband Mark Priemer.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT CLEVELAND IS  It has world class restaurants, brewpubs, world class museums, musical venues, festivals, and theatres. 

 

Mark Priemer, Co-Founder

I GREW UP IN:    CLEVELAND, born & raised in my favorite city in the US !

WHAT I ADMIRE ABOUT OUR TEAM.  They work to create the magic every single day.  Whether they are the first person greeting you when you walk in the door, the chefs creating your meal from scratch menu, or the bartenders & servers saying goodnight to our last guests at 2:00 a.m.

WHEN I AM NOT WORKING  I open a Market Garden Brewery growler and create excel spreadsheet for fun.  I love a good metrics, benchmarking, or safety protocol discussion… I wonder if this is why my teammates never want to meet up with me for a beer.

MIKE FORAN, CO-FOUNDER

I GREW UP IN Bay Village.

WHAT I DAYDREAMED ABOUT. Retiring from the Browns to become the President of the United States.

WHAT I’VE RECENTLY DISCOVERED I love beer more than politics.

WHAT I DO AT OUR ESTABLISHMENTS. I REP and drink our beers.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT CLEVELAND IS that you may leave her, but she’ll always take you back with open arms.

IN TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, our children will read about a time where Cleveland was not internationally considered the #1 city in America.

 

NATHAN CARR, EVENTS COORDINATOR

I GREW UP IN Mansfield, OH

WHERE I DAYDREAMED OF winning a Tony Award.

I’VE RECENTLY DISCOVERED a love of all things edible and drinkable and  parlaying my “performance background” into a talent for party planning…

FOR ME, it’s all about finding the joy in everything I do and sharing it with others.  I can say “I was part of that” when people talk about the renaissance of Cleveland.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT CLEVELAND IS that it’s imperfectly perfect. It’s what makes us stand out from the rest. I love that I can jump around this city and find something unique at every turn.

 

SAM MCNULTY, FOUNDER

I GREW UP IN Cleveland Heights.

WHERE I DAYDREAMED OFcycling, traveling and drinking good beer.

College WAS GREAT. I opened my first restaurant on the Cleveland State campus in my Junior year.  We had 6 beers on draft, and 5 were local craft beers: Great Lakes, Burning River, Western Reserve.

SINCE THEN, I’VE DISCOVERED how awesome Cleveland is.  It’s a post-industrial frontier town with opportunity galore.  The food, beer scene, concerts, and people are awesome.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT CLEVELAND IS the people.  There’s so much to love about this city: the lake, the cultural institutions, the accessibility, easy to get around, affordable.  But again, mostly it’s the friends and fun people.

 

TROUBLE, WAREHOUSE GUARDIAN

I GREW UP IN Ohio City

HOW I GOT MY NAME. I may have scratched Loung when she tried to pet me.

WHERE I USUALLY HANG OUT. Try to find me when you do a beer tour at Market Garden Brewery Production Facility. It’s my hood.

WHAT I ENJOY. I enjoy travel and singing.  I like exploring the alley out back whenever the door is open…there’s a squirrel out there who’s just asking for trouble. Hey, that’s me!

WHAT I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP.  I’d like to be a tour guide one of these days.
