Tom & Lori Janusz

Owner/Operators

The Cedar Brewing Company          

Best investment we made since purchasing the pub. After just a few conversations he designed a thorough business plan that trained our new brewer and I along with short term and long term goals for the brew pub. In all my years of working with great restaurant people I have never before met anyone who was able to take such technical data and put it in such simple to understand form. His knowledge and passion for the brewing industry made him a joy to work with. Mark is a true professional in his craft. His ability to observe and adapt to whatever environment he finds himself in is probably his strongest attribute.
