Uncultured Ales is truly a one-man operation. Cass really likes sour beers, so he taught himself over a period of time how to make them on a larger scale than most homebrewers. When the plastic carboys nearly took over the laundry room of his house, he acquired some used oak barrels from a few vineyards in the Texas Hill Country. He began to age his beer in them and therefore needed a lot more space. Thus began the brewery known as Uncultured Ales.

On brew days or bottling days, he sometimes has volunteer help. Mostly from his teenage son. But sometimes his friends and co-workers stop by to help out and drink beer.
