Hey, we're new here, so allow us to introduce ourselves: we're a husband and wife team that's opening our own coffee shop and brewery (you don't have to be crazy, but it helps!).

But why? Good question. On the one hand, we've grown tired of a consumeristic lifestyle, and have gradually fallen in love with a slower, more sustainable approach to life - one full of coffee, beer, food and friends. Christian is the fly-fishing Presbyterian minister who's been brewing beer since he planted his own hops back in 2010. Marilyn is the master of home cooked hospitality who's been roasting her own coffee beans since 2002. 

And In 2013 we decided it was time for something new. 

So we packed up and moved to Austin, Texas to pursue a crazy dream - to open a small, neighborhood "west coast" style of brewery, emphasizing taproom, not distribution. We want to create the kind of "favorite place" that we'd love to hang out in - full of great coffee, beer, and tacos. And lots of interesting people. 

Lazarus Brewing Co. is the fruit of that vision, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
