Who we are and where it started

A company that LOVES beer and small towns, envisioned Hayden as a great place to open a brewery.  We hope to become the front porch of Hayden where people can make friends over a cold brew.  

Jared Aylor is originally from Belfast New York. Where he grew up on a Dairy farm in a small farming community nestled in the hear of the Genesee river valley.  Jared's passion and desire to open a brewery was inspired during a 2001 visit to Denver. Jared And Elaina Aylor eventually made their way to the Yampa Valley in 2011 by way of Denver.  Jared and Elaina had the energy and passion behind creating and opening a brewery. Welcome to the YVBC.
