An IntraHealth International Production
Ben and Dawnya are the husband-and-wife cofounders of Haw River Farmhouse Ales, a small craft brewery in Saxapahaw, North Carolina. They brew locally sourced, Belgian-inspired, rustic beer styles with a decidedly southern twist. Ben is an accomplished home brewer and business owner, and has started and managed three different graphic design companies since 1999. Dawnya has a neuroscience background that includes work on a variety of projects in the field for the past decade. Along with crafting delicious beers, they capture and cultivate wild local yeast strains for use in fermentation, and have established a network of local farmers, gardeners, growers, and artisans from which to source ingredients and supplies.
