Mark is convinced the perfect pint is best paired with live music and a great friends. A third-generation Chicago native, Mark and his wife Amanda moved to Denver, Colorado in 2009 where he had a day job in operations management, perfecting the art of customer service and moonlighting as a homebrewer. He became obsessed with perfecting unique and delicious beer recipes in his nerdy, custom built mini-brewery. During his eight years in Denver, Mark’s passion for home brewing grew and after advancing to the final rounds of the 2013 and 2015 National Homebrew Competition, Mark and Amanda agreed it was time to see the dream of On Tour Brewing become a reality. Together, they packed up their belongings and drove from Denver to Chicago to build his vision of a place where people can take a break and press pause over a cold, flavorful pint.
