Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, my home town, was famous for many things: we had the flour mills, the lake where Chief Sleepy Eye and his band camped and traded with the white man and Corn Days in August. I was raised in the beer business, working in our family company and growing up with friends and lots to do. Favorite hobbies as a kid were basketball, muskrat trapping, building forts with my buddies, riding my bike to the lake to go fishing and Boy Scouts. I've since grown up and am waiting for our first grand daughter to be born in April, 2013. I love my wife Jan, my boys Jordan and Erik and my daughter in law Cassi. Oh, and Molly the collie!
