Rus Hall started brewing beer professionally in Portland Oregon back in 1992. He moved to Austin Texas in 1998 and got a job at Live Oak brewing a couple years later. From there he went to Lovejoys where he brewed for 7 years. In 2008 he moved back home to Alaska and recently returned to Austin in 2014. He's been with South Austin Brewery since. He really loves working with these guys. When it comes to beer, SAB is pretty traditional. They're not reinventing the wheel here but they make damn good beers!
