Brett McCrea

The Land that the brewery is on  has been in my family since the early 1980's (read 1981ish). It was a pig farm, chicken farm, and cattle land.

Brett is the owner of 16 Mile. He wanted to bring a small business back to his hometown after spending the better part of 10 years working in Washington, DC. He enjoys the creativity behind crafting the beers we make and innovation behind bringing stories to life.

She met the love of her life in college who just happened to be from Sussex County, DE. Visiting the area, she fell just as hard for the friendly people and awesome weather and found her home. Her expertise are in customer service, human resources and event planning. When she’s not at the Brewery she enjoys running on community roads with her dog, coaching youth soccer and playing center-mid for her team in the Delaware Premier Soccer League.
