FOUNDER HISTORY Creek Bottom Brewing Company was started by John Ayers in March of 2013 in Galax, Virginia. John Ayers’ business career started out in 1998 when he founded Professional Networks Inc., an IT support company. In 2006 John’s passion for craft beer started and he became an avid homebrewer. After many years of making his own homebrew and seeking out craft beer from other larger communities, he felt there was an underserved market in Southwest Virginia for craft beer. He set out to create the areas first craft beer retail store. After determining the local demand for craft beer, John felt very confident in making the investment to build a microbrewery along with a restaurant that focused on wood-fired brick-oven pizza and smoked wings.
