A native of Connecticut, Pete earned his Bachelor of Science and Masters of Business Administration from Columbia University before embarking on an executive career with Xerox, ROLM and IBM. In 1979, he attempted to make wine in his kitchen. After several tries, Pete became impatient with the time it took for wine to mature, so he started making beer instead. He borrowed $50,000 from friends and officially opened Pete's Brewing Company in northern California in April, 1986. The fifteen beers created by Pete are now marketed in all 50 states and the United Kingdom.
