Brandon Smith

It was “Shred Lake City” or bust when Brandon moved here in 2006. When the snow dried up so did his bank account, so we offered him a full time job at the Red Rock production brewery.   He now feels blessed…like he’s been living the American dream. When he’s not working at Red Rock, you can find him enjoying his passionate pursuit of drinking craft brew and riding bikes. Brandon also works diligently on his own invention – LEDBYLITE bicycle safety lights.  Check them out here:
