What's in a name?

26/07/2018 They brew craft beer for people who love beer

Back in their homebrew days, Lyle and brew-buddy Paul Singleton would make a 5-gallon batch that they had hoped would amount to 2 cases of 22 oz bottles. As luck would have it, they would always come up just two bottles short of their goal. Almost every time they would say to each other, “we’re two shy again!” Two Shy sort of stuck as an unofficial name.

Later on, two of their friends (Paul and Erik) who began brewing with them left for other ventures. Missing them, they felt they were Two Shy of their original brew crew.

Now they feel that the name fits and it’s an allegory of life. Sometimes life doesn't turn out exactly as you had planned, but coming up Two Shy is still pretty great.
