Story Behind the Name

As Wayne recalls it: “On a sunny afternoon in Snellville [GA] I was hanging out with a few buddies in my tool room and bar in my basement. We were having a good ole time tasting my latest creation: a freshly home-brewed IPA! They all knew about my plans for a brewing company…also that I was having a helluva time selecting the right name for it! I had been searching for weeks on end by now.

So while pints were being emptied and refilled, we joked and brainstormed about branding, life and such. We actually came up with some decent names, along with some really really bad ones. There were a few sessions like this again over the next weeks but still nothing seemed to click for me yet. Damn frustrating!

As ideas came and went, I began to doubt my instincts on the name game. In a spontaneous moment of clarity– it suddenly hit me! Joe and I realized that my answer had been hanging on the pegboard right there in front of me all along: the trusty monkey wrench!

​It made so much sense; I have been known as a self-learner and to throw a wrench in the mix, especially with my beer recipes. Plus, it felt like a true homage to the tools that helped me become a good brewer. We still love to “wrench it up a notch” with our ideas and experiments because that’s what makes us…us. So, there ya go and now here we are!”
