Eric and Jeff
Jeff Eaton, the owner of Barley Island in Noblesville, IN partnered with Eric Smith to open Deer Creek Brewery in the fall of 2015.

Jeff and Eric were long time friends and colleagues at Roche Diagnostics for years, working on projects together in marketing and finance, respectively.  In between projects the two always enjoyed a beer together, talking about how to bring the great Barley Island beer to a larger market.  Finally, in the fall of 2015, the time was right, and Deer Creek Brewery was born.
