Ep. 48 - David Verdugo – Broski Ciderworks LLC
March 21, 2019
David Verdugo / Co-Founder of Broski Ciderworks LLC
Two brothers, one dream. My name is David, I was born in Ecuador, a small country in South America. At the age of 10, my family and I moved to the United States in beautiful and sunny Miami. My dream, was always to become an engineer, following the footsteps of my father and grandfather.
When the time came, I began my studies at the University of Florida. I graduated as a civil engineer and proceeded to get my master and my PhD in engineering as well. Throughout this time, studies and exams would fill me with stress, and interestingly, I found that brewing beer and wine was a way to relieve the built up anxiety. Quickly, brewing became my passion. I would brew so many beers and wines and send them to all my family and friends.
At the time, my brother was a manager at a local wine distributor. He began to
share my brews with his colleagues. I began getting messages from him encouraging me to
brew more ciders. I did.
While working as an engineer, my brother brought up the fact that there were no craft
cideries in South Florida. He asked me "Should we start a craft cidery?" and I did not
hesitate twice. We both jumped on the journey and began the company that is Broski
Ciderworks today. Dedication, passion and a brotherly love, all our dreams came true. Broski
means brothers. Broski means family.
