Born in Cleveland, Ohio - The Pickett Brothers were raised in an era where the cocktail party was something you had not only at family gatherings and holidays, but also poolside in the summer with neighbors and friends well into the night by the firepit.
The adults would make their specialties like the Highball, the Moscow Mule, or a Boilermaker. The kids on the other hand were treated to vibrantly flavored cane sugar sodas and unique ginger ales. Many times mixing the flavors of the different sodas to make their own special cocktail.
So it's no wonder that the three brothers show a love of good drink and culinary adventure, spending a combined 50+ years in the food and beverage industry, traveling the world, and seeking out the best in food and drink.
The oldest Jim has been in the NYC beer, wine, and spirit forefront for nearly two decades after many years in the service industry. Jim has played a large role in the launch and marketing of many prominent brands in the New York metropolitan area.
Brother number two, Bob is a GABF award winning brewer who spent time in kitchens producing sausages and charcuterie. Bob now puts his efforts into the installation and maintenance of draught beer systems in NYC.
Then there's the techie brother and resident spice-loving "pepper-head", Matt. Now a quality analyst and lifestyle blogger with a past stint in the service industry who will try anything his older brothers recommend or make for him. Matt also handles all website duties for the company.
So now we present Pickett Brothers Beverage, an all natural soda and syrup company based in Brooklyn, NY.
