Rogue Ales & Spirits with Celebrity Guest Rob Miller
The Public at Brickyard (Oldtown)
Presented by Standard Beverage Corporation & AIWF-Wichita


rogueIn 1995 Rob Miller purchased Goebel Retail Liquor from his father-in-law, Bill Goebel. A family owned liquor store since 1971, Rob ventured into the liquor industry with his wife, Susie, after he graduated from WSU with an entrepreneurship degree. Rob always loved a good beer, but developed a passion for more exotic beers while working at a liquor store during his college years. With his own store, he set out to create the largest collection of beers in the state of Kansas. In fact, you would have to travel to Denver, Dallas, or even Chicago to find such a wide variety from which to choose. In the 15 short years that Rob & Susie have owned the store, they have transformed it into Wichita’s premier specialty beer destination. Rob and his trained staff have traveled the world looking for quality beers to expand “Rob’s World of 1,000+ Beers.”
