About Us

Who We Are

We are a family and Veteran owned brewery that opened its doors on October 26, 2018. The brewery is owned by Karen Coleman, her brother Bob Heger, his wife Joanne, and their long-time friend Gerry Viglietti. Karen’s son Scott Dougherty is the Assistant Brewer and Bob and Joanne’s daughter Meghan is the Brand Manager. The award winning Head Brewer, Matt Nitchke, grew up with the Heger Family and {fun fact} was often, and occasionally still is, “The Dog Sitter” for the Heger Family.

Our story begins like many others in the craft beer world: home brewing. Bob and Gerry started extract stovetop brewing years ago. Joanne, at that time, was NOT a fan of the smell in the house so they eventually moved to the back patio. Extract turned to “all grain” brewing, which opened the door for more experimentation. Unknown to Bob and Gerry, Matt had also started home brewing and eventually the trio began to brew together. Thankfully, Joanne learned to love the smell of brewing.

Trips to local (and not so local) breweries, beer trading, Razzles and beer lotteries led to the partners getting their hands and palettes on quality liquids. The Heger family would leave The Dog Sitter an occasional whale when he would watch the dogs, and both Scott and Meghan entered their legal beer drinking years with Trillium, Tree House, Veil and other beauties. As the beers they drank improved, their home brews did as well.  

In 2017, we decided to begin looking for a spot to start our own brewery. At the time, Bob was a police officer, Joanne was in academics and Gerry was a truck driver. After entertaining some other names for the brewery, we decided on a name that reflected Bob’s dream of retiring from police work and opening a brewery. Ten7, or more accurately “10-7” is a police code that means “off duty” or “unavailable.” "Ten7" is an ode to Bob’s ultimate 10-7: retirement. In May 2021, Bob retired after more than 25 years in police work and 21 years of military service. He is now spending his time living his dream.

 In July 2017, we found the perfect spot to start our brewery in North Wales. After winning zoning approval in October 2017, the partners got to work at 510 Beaver Street. After spending a very long year of renovations, we opened our doors on October 26, 2018.
