About Us:

Livingood's is much more than just a clever name...It is a family name.

Matt Ray's (Co-Owner and soon to be Brewmaster) great-great grandfather; James Livingood and his son Clarence Adam "C.A." Livingood, owned a butcher shop in Conestoga, PA during the late 1800's to early 1900's.

The Livingood father and son were passionate business owners who were very successful and well respected in their community.

"C.A.", who took over the business after his father passed away, was very generous to his neighbors, the church and community organizations. Livingood's Butcher & Son would roast 50-75 pounds of meat for funerals and help with the services.

There were three butchers who roomed at the Livingood homestead. Eliza "Mommom" Livingood (C.A.'s wife) would provide huge breakfasts, clean laundry and all the necessities before they would go on their butcher delivery routes. There was always a meal ready whenever anyone came to the house or home from the routes.
