Daniel McCoy and Jeff Collie are two little brothers who after years of missing each other, finally connected to create a special drinking establishment in honor of those younger siblings.
Little Brother Brewing, located at 348 S. Elm St., in Greensboro opened Nov. 2 to a lot of rousing cheers, great reviews and fully capturing that “little brother spirit”.
“It’s funny, our paths crossed so many times in our lives, but we just became friends a few years ago,” McCoy said. “[Collie] went to High Point Central and I went to Ragsdale, so we played sports against each other. Then he went to Carolina, and I went to Carolina, and we lived on the same street for a long time and didn’t even know each other.”
As luck would have it, the wives of the pair were out with friends drinking wine one night, and McCoy’s wife heard Collie’s wife mentioning that her husband was looking to open a brewery.
“My wife told me, and I immediately got on the phone and reached out and asked what are you doing, planning and stuff and told him I’d like to be involved,” McCoy said.
