The story behind Jackalope Brewing Company
Jackalope Brewing Company was founded by Bailey Spaulding and Robyn Virball. Bailey and Robyn became friends in September 2002 in the tiny Scottish village of St. Andrews, where Bailey was doing a semester abroad and Robyn was completing her undergraduate degree. During the next eight years, they both graduated, Bailey went off to Vanderbilt Law School, and Robyn entered the working world, but both thought they were looking for much bigger and more intoxicating things. Bailey’s passion for homebrewing led to the Jackalope dream, and the ladies dove into planning the brewery. They were joined by their friend Steve Wright at end of 2010. He started out as Jackalope’s biggest fan, parlayed that into being the very first Jackalope intern, and is now a full on partner in Jackalope.
