There’s a Place for You

Welcome to the neighborhood place where brewers, bankers and bricklayers can all come together. There’s a place for you at Fourpenny House. This is why you work. Leave your 9–5 at the door, and let’s raise a glass. Toast to heritage and the many crafty ways we know how to use a simple grain. Drinking, cooking, baking.

I am Josh. I played music for a long time, I married Lisa, and we made three rad kids. I cook, drink, and eat a lot of deliciousness. I feel it is important to make sure every child has a loving home to grow up in. I enjoy putting foods together with drinks, a good time with friends and music.
