True Talk – Mother’s Brewing Company


My name is Jeff Shrag. I’m the owner and founder of Mother’s
Brewing Company and I’ve lived in Springfield for just over 20 years. I had an opportunity to buy a business. I did a bunch of soul searching and settled
on craft beer. One of the big things was I really want do
it in downtown Springfield. The whole region was just kind of sitting
around waiting for a brewery to root for. I think we’ve been able to open people’s
minds. Not just about experiencing alcohol with flavor, not just experiencing something that’s local made. But recognizing that bringing a nice beer
to an occasion makes the occasion better. I’m a big advocate for downtown and love
my life in downtown Springfield. Kind of a city within a city and it has just
become home to me. Visitors should make sure to stay out late
when you’re downtown. I think if you scratch just a little bit beneath
the surface Springfield has a great deal to offer both for residents and for new folks.
