Dave and Don met in 2001 at High Falls Brewery in Rochester, NY where Don was head of sales and Dave was head brewmaster. Dave had previously been head brewmaster at Rohrbachs in Rochester and at Custom Brewcrafters in Honeoye Falls. Don had spent his sales and marketing career in and out of the alcoholic beverage industry, including stints at Gallo Wine and Constellation Brands. Dave holds a brewing degree from the prestigious Siebel Institute in Chicago.

Upon meeting they realized that they both had a passion for craft beers. In the years that followed, Dave and Don turned the JW Dundee line of beers (which was only Honey Brown) into one of the largest craft beers in the country by adding such craft offerings as Pale Ale, Amber Lager, Bock and Festive Ale. It was at this point that Don and Dave started mulling around the idea of starting up their own brewery. Dave had the brewing and operational skills, Don had the sales and marketing skills. They also had the passion and the desire. There was only one piece missing. Ken.

Ken had once told Dave that when he was ready to break free and venture out on his own, that Ken would be a willing partner. Hence the partnership of Ken, Dave and Don began. (Scramble their names to make Naked Dove).  Ken's reward for being a great silent partner was that he had his own beer named after him, our Z'higgi Pils.  We opened our doors in Canandaigua on November 6, 2010.
