The Home of the Brave Brewing Company is made up of the Tomlinson Family and Friends that collaborate to Brew our flagship and seasonal Beers
Janet & Glen Tomlinson
Founders of The Tomlinson Corporation, Janet & Glen have over 35 years experience in the Hospitality Industry. In 1991 they created Home of the Brave Tours & Museum, a one-of-a-kind WWII themed Military Base Tour along with the largest private collection of 1940's memorabilia in the Pacific. The Home of the Brave Brewseum was handbuilt by the family and is the best ranked brewpub on the island of Oahu.
Oldest of the Tomlinson kids, Duke graduated from Colorado State University and is our Sales & Marketing Director. He handles Management of the Brewseum website and all social media. Duke was Home of the Brave's youngest historian guide (when he was a junior in high school) and helps manage and operate the Brewseum. Duke's capstone project when he graduated from CSU was to create the brewseum (brewpub+museum) concept along with Home of the Brave Brewing Company. The Brewseum is now the number one ranked brewpub on Oahu and the Home of the Brave Brewing Company has an incredible portfolio of craft beers designed by his good friend and mentor Jeff Doyle.
Known as Bear, our Director of Operations was a home brewer in Durango Colorado while going to school and worked at the Ska Brewing Co & at Anheuser Busch. His love for craft beer brought him back home to help build and run the Brewseum. Bear ran the day to day operations in the Brewseum and is now the sales and marketing director for Durango Brewing Company in Durango, CO.
Brittany was our Hospitality Director who marketed, sold and coordinated special events. She is currently flying the friendly skies with United Airlines in Chicago.
Dena Tomlinson (Duke's wife) serves our guests with her award winning smile and keeps the Brewseum humming. She writes copy for all of our publications and websites & marketing material (when she isn't chasing Rocco, Duke & Dena's son around the house).
Cousin Brian Clarke, former Marine and Home of the Brave Branding expert is the founder and owner of Product Ventures, a world-wide brand strategy and design consultancy specializing in product and packaging innovation. Brian designs the packaging and brand standards for Home of the Brave.
Jeff, Home of the Brave's Brewmaster is certainly master of his craft while creating unique beers. He hails from O'Dells Brewing Co. in Fort Collins Colorado where Duke went to college and fell in love with craft brewing. Jeff agreed to come on-board with Home of the Brave to formulate our flagship Pilot Pale Ale (brewed on his own "pilot" system). This "home run" followed by Jeff's Remember Pearl Harbor Dark Lager to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor put HOTBBC on the map in the islands as a premier brewing company with style and class.
Kendall - aka Jack of all Trades - helped build the Home of the Brave Brewseum and Micro-Brewery. Together with Glen & the good doctor Keith, they brew the HOTBBC amazing beer recipes created by Brewmaster Jeff Doyle.
