In pursuit of the American Dream, a group of friends started bottling craft beers in the small town of Marshall, Michigan. Since Dark Horse's first brew in 1997, the business has grown into 12 states and even cultivated a fan base called "Dark Horse Nation." Writer and storyteller Elizabeth Wolff '06 is the executive producer for Dark Horse Nation, a new series which premiered on July 29 on HISTORY. Tune in for "great beer, innovation and renegade entrepreneurialism" in this examination of the day-to-day adventures of the Dark Horse Brewing Company.
However, DARK HORSE NATION is not only about crafting great beer, it’s a way of life. Their recipe for success is as much about experimentation and trouble-shooting as it is self-taught skill and determination. Every week, there’s some new project, from creating outlandish inventions to building additions to their ever-growing compound. Around here, everything is done by hand, the old-fashioned way, or as they like to put it, “The Dark Horse Way.”
