Shaun and his wife Emily started Alpen Fuel in the fall of 2018, and began stocking their online store with many different quality food products from smaller brands. Alpen Fuel began as a small side business while Shaun pursued his engineering career with a laser optics manufacturing company. All Alpen Fuel profits were put towards growing the business. In June of 2020, Shaun was laid off from his job as a result of the economic downturn surrounding COVID-19. After being laid off, Shaun and his wife Emily decided to pursue their passion - grow Alpen Fuel into a full time business. They started by launching four flavors of high octane breakfast granola in the fall of 2020.

I love this shop! I am a repeat offender. Such an easy process to purchase items here. I love to use the “filter” button to narrow down what I need, whether it is a brand or an item under $20. I honestly think you could outfit yourself for a hike just thru this site- so cool! Quick shipping and my favorite part … I love getting my personalized note from GGG crew members. Such an awesome touch. Keep up the amazing job GGG!!🧡
Hands-, feet-, head-, whatever- down, simply the best. You just can't do much better than GGG. The positivity is welcomed and infectious. From the descriptions of the products, the interactions on emails, the little notes on the receipts, the fast service, the QUALITY of the products... I have only good vibes for these guys. And I must have about 5 of those teeny tiny toothbrushes :-D Cheers!!!
Garage Grown Gear is such a wonderful shop for any ultralight backpacking enthusiast looking to support small companies! Their staff are so friendly and helpful, they ship very quickly, and they always have awesome gear from awesome little companies. They also provide all kinds of helpful information and fun reading materials in their newsletters. I recommend this place to all of my friends and I recommend them to you as well!
