About Us

Like the 2nd Act of a concert, 2nd Act Beer is the up-and-coming main event ready to take the stage. Founded in Dover, NJ – together Brandon Galluppi, Stuart Blake and Bob Blake joined forces with the goal to create beer inspired by music. Striving to create a product that is approachable and flavorful, we guarantee that our beers are sure to please fresh and well-seasoned craft beer drinkers alike.

Stuart Blake

Stuart Blake

Head of Brewing Operations

Stuart Blake has been brewing beers at home for the last five years, always with a glimmer of hope that his hobby would turn into an life-sustaining career. Stu had his first brewing experience using an underpowered stove at his friend’s Hoboken, NJ apartment, and he never looked back. He soon progressed (like most do) to setting up his own, properly-powered brewing rig, formulating new recipes, and expanding his knowledge of beer and the processes that make it delicious. With many seasons of honing his craft in hand, Stu is ready to take center stage and deliver some decadent suds directly to your tastebuds.

Sales & Marketing

Brandon always had a passion for cooking, beer and music. Wanting to have a business of his own, Brandon jumped at the opportunity to create a brand that focused around those very things. Brandon comes to 2nd Act to manage the business, marketing and sales end of this operation.

The latest bands that Brandon is listening to is Griz, Big Gigantic and Alabama Shakes.

Bob Blake

Digital & Events

In a parallel line of work to Hank Hill, Bob Blake wants to provide the world with beer and beer accessories. He also lives in Texas. Having played music for most of his functional memory he feels strongly about the connection that people associate with the art of music. Growing into adulthood he has grown to burn with a firey passion for the art of beer, reminiscent of his firey hair. He views both worlds as having the ability to bring us together, allowing us to meet new people, and enabling us to view the world through a different lens. Marrying the two in beautiful harmony is simply the next logical step.
