Tom Schaeffer is a community oriented man. He had a vision for a brewery that not only made good beer, but was committed to making a positive contribution to the community. He shared this idea with a few friends and built the team of founders. Together, they decided to locate the business in downtown Toledo and to play a part in the revival that is taking place. Thus, Black Cloister was born.
