5×5 Brewing Co. is the brainchild of brothers, Matt Mazur and George Rice and a longtime friend.
Displeased with the available variety of beers in the Rio Grande Valley in the early 1990s, Matt Mazur and his college buddy played with the idea of starting a beer-centric publication. They hoped to help educate local RGV beer and develop a demand for more new and exciting beers, but it never launched.
With a strong interest in beers, our Brewmaster began a 15-year journey into the home brewing scene. With a few well-received competitions, he was able to hone his craft and develop the incredible recipes that are used today at 5×5 Brewing Co.
Matt and George approached their childhood friend Sean Downey to bring his professional background in Marketing and Business Administration to the table and with the tireless hard work, from the three Co-Founders 5×5 Brewing Co. was able to get the momentum to go from a 20-year-old idea of writing about beer, to create the beer that our fans love and crave.
George Rice (U.S. Army) and Sean Downey (U.S. Marine Corps) proudly served in our military, and it is with the love for their brothers in arms and an unquenchable love for beer that 5×5 Brewing Co. has adopted its military theme, including its name, which was a term used by radio operators to describe when signal and clarity was at its best.
Recently, 5×5 Brewing Co. partnered with two more veterans Domingo De La Garza (U.S. Marine Corps) and Alex Gelman (U.S. Navy), both RGV natives, to bring even more dedication and passion to the business of creating quality craft beers. They will focus on connecting with our fans and allowing them to become immersed in the camaraderie and esprit de corps associated with military life.
