Client Testimonials

Don't just take our word for it! Here's what some of our satisfied clients have to say:

"We worked with Gorman & Smith to get our brewhouse up and running after encountering roadblocks in opening Black Lab. We would not have gotten open on time, and possibly not at all, if it weren't for Kyle and his ability to work through any problem. Since then, we have worked with Kyle on an expansion that was completed smoothly and on schedule and for a variety of other brewhouse needs along the way. He is fantastic to work with and his customer service is stellar."
