The Brewery’s name stands for 4 husbands by 4 wives. The owners include Derek & Danielle Shimeall, Chris & Shila Shaffer, Justin & Stacy Steenburgh, and Steve & Kelly Dobbs. Together, they selected Fremont Hills for its central location and connectivity in northern Christian County.

“We’re excited to have 4 By 4 Brewing Company building a new facility in the City of Fremont Hills,” said Luke Davis, Mayor of Fremont Hills. “With their community-minded spirit and family-friendly atmosphere, 4 By 4 will be a great place to offer the residents of Fremont Hills local entertainment just a golf cart ride away.”

Home to 110+ breweries, in addition to 130+ wineries and 30+ distilleries, Missouri’s alcohol industry has entered a new golden age. Most people know about Missouri-based Anheuser-Busch, but Missouri is also becoming known for its craft beer production. Companies like Boulevard Brewing Co., Urban Chestnut, and Mother’s Brewing Company are producing hundreds of thousands of barrels of craft beer each year.
