When Brewmaster Matt Ehinger married Courtney McHugh in 2001, he instantly became part of a large, tight-knit, fun-loving family. The current McHugh family consists of mom and dad, three sisters, one brother, three brother-in-laws, one sister in law, and 11 grandkids!
But as in all families, especially ones with a lot of sisters, it can sometimes be hard to keep the peace. Matt quickly learned that the best way to make family gatherings run smoothly was to supply everyone with his home-brewed beer. The sisters, and the brothers, learned to be less ‘bitter’ with every sip of beer.
As the years went on, the family continued to grow, the beer continued to flow, and an idea was hatched for a family-owned brewery utilizing everyone’s different talents and skills. Bitter Sisters Brewing Company was conceived during family birthday parties, holidays, and summer vacations together.
The only production brewery in Addison, Texas, Bitter Sisters is an independent, family-owned craft brewery with a passion for making great beer. The family that brews together, has the most fun
While attending the University of Oklahoma, Matt began brewing at home and became captivated with the art and science of craft beer. It was during this time that he leveraged his love of craft beer and his passion for homebrewing into a full-time job as the Head Brewer at Coach’s Brew Pub in Norman, Oklahoma. For nearly four years he brewed for the pub, handling almost all of the daily brew operations.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering, Matt moved to Dallas, Texas, and spent thirteen years in semiconductor manufacturing. However, he continued to brew craft beer and dream of one day owning his own brewery. Having had his fill of the corporate world of engineering, Matt and his family decided the time was right to finally make Bitter Sisters a reality.
Matt’s dedication, attention to detail, and an extreme passion for the art of brewing are what make his beer so delicious. Born in Oklahoma, brewed in Texas, and finally ready for mass consumption.
