Support our Future began as a passion project by a team involved in a leadership and development training called Redesign. Redesign challenged us to cast off the limiting beliefs that have had us live small and to believe and accept that we can create the life and world we want. We choose to stand for a world that is loving, authentic, joyful, abundant, and passionate; and our aim every day is to be the people who live that vision for tomorrow … today.

Kevin Ryan graduated from West Point in 1996 with a degree in Engineering Management. After that, he spent the next eight years leading and training soldiers in Alaska and Colorado. He commanded two companies in Iraq and left the Army for civilian life in 2004. After a short stint with Booz Allen Hamilton in Michigan, he found himself working, in New York and South Carolina, for CareCore National, helping his father with the expansion of his management company. While it was a less obvious path for a former commander, Kevin deeply values the lessons gained in the eight years of developing management products and building client relationships, but most importantly, having the privilege and honor of working next to his father. In 2012, his fiancé, Meredith Sutton, bought him a home brewing kit. He began tinkering with it immediately, fascinated by both the process and the product. Within seven months they began working on the plans to open a brewery inspired by service to the country and community. Service Brewing Company opened in Downtown Savannah, GA in 2014 and distributes its product throughout Georgia and the Carolinas
