Matt Albrecht is a firefighter/paramedic and founder of River Drive. He saves lives, recycles whiskey barrels, and also turns those barrels into beautiful things. Matt discusses why you don’t fight fires for the money, and how he got into the business of giving old wood new life.
“Consider us the retirement home for used barrels, the half-way home for those tossed to the curb. We believe each and every one deserves a second, third, or fourth chance. We can see the true beauty and potential in what appear to be ordinary wooden barrels. From bottle openers to hardwood floors, we turn ordinary into extraordinary!”
