Founder

Pete Ballou

Pete Ballou, entrepreneur and veteran, founded BrewHaha Brewing Company out of his passion for beer and love for comedy. Inspired by his company, BrewHaha Comedy Tours®, Pete decided to take his passion for beer to the next level.

Pete started BrewHaha Tours, later to become BrewHaha Comedy Tours®, in 2014. His goal with these tours was to provide customers with a brewery tour experience they’ll never forget by combining live comedy and expertly crafted brews.

After doing this for a while, Pete got to thinking, “Why not start a brewery myself?” And thus, BrewHaha Brewing Company was born.

With the help of his friend, Aaron Argenbright, Pete took the first steps toward opening the doors of BrewHaha Brewing Company. It was the first craft brewery approved in Rockingham County in March 2018.
