Stacey Brewer, Cody Brewer, and Ben Brewer – Brewery Staff

The Brewer brothers are all brothers from a different mother. Born in the Appalachian Mountains they all wanted something other than moonshining for their families so they traveled to the Ozarks to brew beer. During the week they brew beer, can beer, and clean the brewery. After work and on the weekends they enjoy drinking beer. By using the power of their beards they brew some of the best beer in Springfield, Missouri. 

John “Buz” Hosfield – Proprietor

Buz was born and raised in the small mining town of Bisbee, Arizona about the time the dinosaurs went extinct. He then attended and graduated from the University of Arizona before entering the United States Army. After his service as an officer, he moved to Los Angeles and began a 40-year career as a banker and family man. After he retired from banking he moved to the Ozarks and instead of fishing every day, he decided to work a solid ten hours a week as the proprietor of White River Brewing Co in 2007. After several years of renovating, brewing equipment was purchased in 2012 and White River Brewing Company began production.
