Owners Scott and Leah both started new jobs on the same day at Asheville Brewing Company, where they met in North Carolina in 2013. Shortly after, the idea of Silver Spruce was born. Scott’s family is from the Flint area, while Leah was born in Traverse City. And the couple recently moved back to Michigan with their 4-week old daughter Lila to be close to family. They believe Traverse City is a great town to start their family, and wanted to part of the vibrant beer scene, while enjoying the endless outdoor activities.
Scott holds degrees in Molecular Biology from the University of South Florida and Brewing Science from the University of California Davis. Leah graduated from Siebel Institute with a degree in Brewing Technology.
