Destiny. A power deeply embedded here at Nortons Brewing Company. For it was written in the stars for Dan and Becky Norton to unite and realize this dream.
Dan began honing his craft way back in 2001 at River City Brewing Co in Wichita. What was merely a hobby, quickly developed into a distinguished career with Wichita’s first, true brewery. From building lasting traditions and relationships, to almost tripling the draft selection with unique combinations, his accomplishments after 17 years is the stuff of legends. Hard work. Attention to detail. Passion. Creativity. All hallmarks of any good brewer, and manifesting those characteristics led Dan to help pioneer the craft beer industry in Wichita.
Becky has entrepreneurial blood in her veins, as she was raised by a family of Wichita independent business owners. Not only the beauty of the operation, she’s the brains – graduating (with honors!) from Friends University with a degree in business management and a background in accounting and bookkeeping, she’s sharp as an axe. Knowing the value of first-hand experience, she spent the last four years operating a local restaurant to learn the ropes in the food and beverage industry. All while raising their 3 brilliant children!
Together, they’re determined to fight, scrap, and claw to make something of this life by chasing the American Dream and building a legacy for their children. They’ve opened Nortons Brewing Company to share their talent and dedication with everyone, and their mission is to help grow Wichita into the destination beer city it’s meant to be by brewing beer that has soul.
We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor, and we can’t wait to raise a glass with you and this great city!
– Cheers! –
