After a storied run through college, single, and double A baseball, Drew Ehrlich, an award winning master brewer, was ready to launch his next adventure.
In July 2008, he and Jenny Lewis (collegiate swimmer, serial entrepreneur, and Strike Brewing CEO), were celebrating a birthday and giving her future husband (Drew’s best man and former teammate), a hard time about his allegiance to watered-down beer. Jenny and Drew asked, “Why not brew session beer for everyone that tastes good?” and from there, Strike was born. Strike's business model and product quality is driving meaningful growth in both their branded business and contract brewing business. Spruce & Norton is working with the leadership team at Strike to ensure they have the financial resources needed to meet the demands of this next chapter of growth.
