This is How We Brew It: An Entrepreneur Veteran’s Story

May 2, 2022

How hard is it to turn a hobby into a successful business? Former Army Captain Kevin Ryan decided that rather than look for a new job he’d create one – and realized he wanted to turn his home brewing hobby into a real-life business. Host Sergeant Major of the Army (retired) Dan Dailey sits down for a drink (or two) with Kevin at Service Brewing in Savannah, GA to discuss Kevin’s Army career, the ins-and-outs of the brewery business, and most importantly… what his top beer is.  

  • Guest: Kevin Ryan, former U.S. Army Captain and CEO & Co-Founder, Service Brewing, Co. 
  • Host: SMA (Ret) Daniel Dailey, AUSA’s Vice President for NCO and Soldier Programs
