WHERE WE CAME FROM
HELLO CAPTAIN PINT
Megaton’s Master Brewer, affectionately known as Captain Pint, began his journey of crafting his own brews in the early 1990’s. His brewing experience and culinary training led to years of experimental brewing well outside the boundaries of traditional beer styles. Jered then began to hone his craft, he collaborated with others in the craft beer community, in addition to teaching local courses in advanced brewing techniques. Jered graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Houston, and holds a Master of Science degree in Hospitality Administration from the Conrad Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management.
HELLO VAULT BOY
After moving to the Kingwood area, Chris Sarvadi affectionately known as “Vault Boy”, started his tutelage under the master and would later become his dedicated apprentice, friend and business partner. Chris received his BA in Communication from Cabrini College in 2012.
HELLO DR. DEAL
As Jered and Chris began to push each other during their collaborations between their two distinct brewing styles and shared them with friends and family everyone wanted more. JP “Dr. Deal” Barkley was helping drain the kegs Jered and Chris were sharing around town and he soon began to share the amazing elixir he was enjoying with others as if it was his own. This led to this tripod of a friendship, never to be shaken or toppled to seek out a way to bring their passion to reality. John Paul adds his knowledge of marketing skills to the mix and has a BA in Business Marketing from the University of Houston.
After sharing their dream with many friends and family, their greatest fan and biggest champion Victoria Sarvadi who is JP’s mother-in-law and Chris’s aunt caught the craft beer bug and saw what it could be. With her help and generosity and the guidance of her husband Paul Sarvadi, a successful entrepreneur the dream of Megaton became a reality. Victoria has a doctorate in Hebraic Studies.
