Bare Arms Brewing LLC

About the name:

Anyone who has perfected a craft works hard for that perfection.  Our experience in brewing craft beer is no different.  We are passionate about making quality craft beer, and we’re not afraid to roll up our sleeves, bare our arms and work hard to perfect our craft –thus the name Bare Arms Brewing.


Who we are: 

Kevin Yackley, CEO and Brewer

A serial entrepreneur, a US Air Force Veteran, retired technologist and business executive, Kevin has been brewing for over 35 years.  Kevin has been at the forefront of the biggest craft beer expansion in our country’s history.  He’s a fully qualified beer snob!

Keith Collier, Founder and Brewmaster

A Mechanical Engineer who started out enjoying craft beer.  Keith started home-brewing as a hobby, but it quickly became a passion.  His engineering background gave a different outlook on craft brewing and drove his desire for perfecting his craft beer recipes.


Why we are:

With over 40 years of combined brewing experience, our brewers are passionate about beer - making it, drinking it, and living the culture.  From the day we started home-brewing, people were interested. This was not just because the beer was good, but the culture of brewing beer itself and sharing it with others seemed to bring people together.   


The interest and excitement from peers was very noticeable. We would always get asked when are you brewing next, what’s in the fermenter, or what’s new?  We definitely enjoyed home-brewing and got countless compliments. However, the compliments would often end with “you should sell this.”


After planning and research, we decided to roll up our sleeves, bare our arms and go to work. On June 5, 2015 Bare Arms opened its doors.  After nearly 5 years, Bare Arms merged with Two Rivers Beer Company to expand our footprint and continue to grow the craft beer scene in Waco, TX.

 “Success isn’t just about taking chances; to succeed, you have to put in hard work and take a leap of faith.  Thanks for taking this journey with us.  We hope you continue to enjoy our craft.”

Keith Collier, Founder and Brewmaster
