Gabriel Aiello is the owner/founder of Burly Beverages in Sacramento, California. Gabriel has been making liquid concoctions since he was just a little one (much to his parents dismay… many, many explosions occurred). He is now self proclaimed “Sodasmith” or “Shubbist” and has been crafting all natural sodas, shrubs and switchels for about seven years now. Gabriel is known for his unyielding, hard line focus on sustainability in food production and packaging practices. When he’s not crafting ancient tonics and elixirs, Gabriel enjoys cooking and hiking with his wife (dynamo glass artist Meg A. Myers), playing rock ‘n’ roll with his band Drop Dead Red and spending time with his amazing family and friends.
