Once upon a time, there was a dad who loved watching TV with his two daughters. Their favorite show had a character named Happy, and they thought he was the coolest thing since sliced bread. So, when they got a pet fish, they named it Happy after their beloved TV character and all was well.
One day, tragedy struck. A bird flew into their window and needed rescuing. So, the man and his family nursed it back to health and decided to name it Happy as well.
A few years later, when they got their first dog, they knew exactly what to call him - Happy, of course! And life was good. But when the pandemic hit, the dad decided the family needed some fun. So, he came home with 3 goats.
When it came time to name them, his wife shouted, "pas Happy!" or "not Happy!" in French. So, the goats were named accordingly. But, despite having a fish, a bird, and a dog named Happy, and a goat named Pas Happy, the dad still wasn't convinced that Happy was a good name for his new brewery.
After much deliberation and a few beers, he realized that Happy was the perfect name. It represented everything the brewery stood for - fun, community, and enjoying life's simple pleasures. So he named the brewery Happy after their beloved furry friends.
So come on down to Happy Craft Brewing for a pint, because, who knows, you might just get to meet Pas Happy and the crew!
