Rob Whyte

FMBrew was born out of a hobby that originally began in 1991, perfected since about 2006. I'm supposed to tell what my favorite FMBrew is, but that's like asking a parent which of their children is their favorite, I love them all!

Tony LaMantia

Taproom Manager aka Taster Board Specialist and Food Truck Taster

About Tony: Not standing still is my favorite. I have visited 47 of the 50 United States, and spent time in 18 countries on 5 Continents. I have collected water from 4 different oceans, and may try to make a beer with it some time. I love beer and coffee equally and I am glad that they both are mostly water because my doctor says that I am supposed to drink a lot of water. I married up to a woman who may actually love beer a little more than even I do.  I love good food and I love people, even if sometimes the best ones might smell kinda funny. Lastly, there is no such thing as a girly beer or a manly glass, and I am 99% sure I can find a beer that you will like, even if you have already given up.

Favorite FMBrew: Ironically, Clean Shave
