Nick Tanner

Founder / Owner / Brewmaster
Nick was born in Atlanta, Georgia and moved to Fort Collins, Colorado after
graduating high school. In 2005, Nick went to Colorado State University for a Major in Natural Resource Tourism and a Minor in Business.

While living on Cherry Street in Fort Collins, the idea of the brewery came to fruition. In 2006, Nick and his roommate Zak created a homebrew club called Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative. Nick learned that beer is social, humble, and also charitable.

In 2009, Nick moved back to Cumming to help his dad, Rick Tanner, run the restaurant Rick Tanner's Chicken. After some years of success, Rick and Nick decided to open up a brewery.

After 11 long months of working with Forsyth County, Cherry Street Brewing Cooperative was founded on December 12, 2012.
