Will Holoway- Will is one of the founders of the company. He currently is our roving beer fanatic looking for new trends in the brewing business and he writes our monthly newsletter. Will has been brewing for 20+ years and has a wealth of both all-grain and extract brewing experience. Will is also a very active member of the local mountain biking and cross country skiing community. He is the web master for the Twin Cities cross country skiing group. He loves mountain biking in the summer and can be found cross country skiing at the many races and events around the upper mid west in the winter.

Scott Law- Scott is also one of the founders of WindRiver and has been the companies president since it's inception in 1993. Scott is active in every aspect of the operation of the business, from web design to sweeping the floors. Scott got the brewing bug while attending college in Montana in the 1980's. He worked for a brewery in Minneapolis for a few years before starting WindRiver in 1993. Scott has a great deal of knowledge in both home brewing, wine, and mead making. Rarely is there a question or problem he hasn't run into before. Scott loves being in the country. He grows a large vegetable garden, raises chickens, goats, bees, pigs and sheep and just generally loves playing farmer.

Tammie Law- Tammie is Scott's wife who helps out in the store or answering the phones when things get busy. Tammie is a full time home economics teacher at a local school. She recently became a certified master food preserver through the Wisconsin extension service. She knows a lot about brewing and making wine and certainly can get an answer out of Scott if you have a question for her she can't answer. Tammie loves to knit and has been known to bang out a nice pair of wool socks in a couple of evenings.

Benjamin Law- Ben is Scott and Tammie's son who thinks he is in charge of the whole operation. Ben loves to help out were he can. This usually means shoveling snow in the winter and sweeping floors in the summer. He also likes to stack orders that have been packed on the pallet for the UPS (or as Ben calls him the P.U.S.) man. Ben just turned 6 in January 2010. Obviously he knows little about brewing beer or wine but can fill you in on the best crystal malt to snack on. (He has loved crystal malt since the day he got teeth!) Ben also loves talking with customers and will take anyone interested out to see his pet goats Buffy and Bella.
