It's not just a brewery; it's a way of life.

"Dark Horse Nation"

New Series Premieres Tuesday, July 29 at 10 p.m. on HISTORY(R)

New York, NY - July 22, 2014 - DARK HORSE NATION, a new 12-episode series premiering Tuesday, July 29 at 10 p.m. on HISTORY, combines great beer, innovation and renegade entrepreneurialism as it follows the day-to-day adventures of the Dark Horse Brewing Company.

In small town Marshall, Michigan, there is a group of life-long friends living out their version of the American dream. Led by rebel entrepreneur and fearless visionary, Aaron Morse, Dark Horse is a thriving business set amongst a rural paradise. Morse and his team have been making a name for themselves since 1997, when Dark Horse started bottling their unique line of craft beers. Now distributed in 12 states, the Dark Horse crew is determined to turn their business into a household name. Its die-hard fan base even has its own nickname: Dark Horse Nation.

However, DARK HORSE NATION is not only about crafting beer, it's a way of life. Their recipe for success is as much about experimentation and trouble-shooting as it is self-taught skill and determination. Every week, there is a new project, from creating outlandish inventions to building additions to their ever-growing compound. Around here everything is done by hand, the old-fashioned way, or as they like to put it the "Dark Horse Way."

The characters featured in DARK HORSE NATION are:

Aaron Morse - Owner, Dark Horse Brewing Co.

Aaron is the brains and vision behind the meteoric rise of Dark Horse Brewing Co. He's created a national following for his offbeat microbrews and has turned Dark Horse into a lifestyle. But his genius doesn't stop at beer - he has endless ambition for designing and engineering a better way to do things. He's determined to grow Dark Horse the brand into an international phenomenon and he's going to do it his way.

Wacky Morse - Aaron Morse's father/Co-Owner, Dark Horse Brewing Co.

Aaron started Dark Horse in the back of his father's party store. This fact is not lost on Wacky who, though retired, still comes to work every day like he owns the joint. It is Aaron's place now but that doesn't stop Wacky from bossing everyone around, including his son.

Cabe - Head of Maintenance, Dark Horse Brewing Co.

Cabe is able to build anything that Aaron Morse can dream up. Cabe spends his time rigging, welding, hammering and drinking. Not necessarily in that order. He once had a job in corporate America and he doesn't want to go back.

Wiggs - Head of Brewery Operations, Dark Horse Brewing Co.

Wiggs is in charge of all brewing at Dark Horse. He is the chemist tasked with creating more than 80 limited release brews each year. As Dark Horse continues to grow, Wiggs just keeps going - an endless surplus of creativity and brewing ingenuity. He's the only brew master that Aaron has ever wanted on his team and a big reason for why there is such a cult following for Dark Horse Beer.

Chappy - Head of Shipping and Receiving, Dark Horse Brewing Co.

Chappy and Aaron Morse have known each other the longest; two misfit kids who grew up in Marshall, MI and are now bonded for life. He is the gatekeeper of Dark Horse - he knows everything that comes in and goes out of the compound. Chappy is also the biggest and strongest guy at Dark Horse and serves as crowd control on those nights that get a little rowdy.

DARK HORSE NATION is produced for HISTORY by Warrior Poets. Tim Healy and Steve Ascher are executive producers for HISTORY. Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin, Ethan Goldman, Morgan Spurlock, and Elizabeth Wolff are executive producers for Warrior Poets.
