Zac Gleason


A long-time craft beer enthusiast and foodie, Zac  (AKA: Sota Eats) decided to follow his passion in September of 2021. Leaving his successful corporate career, he took a leap of faith to build his legacy, Hackamore Brewing Company in Chanhassen, MN. He brought his years of property management experience, melded with his desire for entrepreneurship to fruition with HBC.

Zac is married to his wife, Alees and together they have 2 boys, Decker and Griffey, residing in Eden Prairie since 2011. In Zac’s spare time he coaches baseball, runs his social media foodie account (Sota Eats), and loves to golf. Zac prides himself on being very family focused which is the why behind the brewery name and the staff/ownership involved.

Zac loves that craft beer can be anything you imagine it to be. He loves to try new rotating styles or a perfectly-executed traditional-style beer. His favorite craft beer style is NE IPA and is a huge fan of Dreamyard from Modist.
