DESTIHL remembers the importance of paying it forward. 

nelson memorial fund

As one of founding members of our company, Troy joined the organization in February 2007. He consulted with Matt Potts on the development of the first DESTIHL Restaurant & Brew Works. Troy was instrumental in defining the corporate values & philosophies and set the tone for the operating environment. He translated the corporate vision and strategy into both organizational and business unit policies, directives, procedures and performance targets. Sadly, in March of 2008, we lost Troy suddenly to cancer. 

DESTIHL, along with the help of the Nelson family, created the ‘Nelson Memorial Fund’ to honor Troy’s memory by providing financial assistance to local non-profit charities or people in the community who deserved a helping hand. Recipients receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every order of T.R. Nelson’s Banana Cream Pie (Troy’s favorite dessert). 

Since the creation of our T. R. Nelson Banana Cream Pie, it has remained the #1 dessert sold in our brewpubs year after year.
