My first intro to making beer was 8 years ago at a brew on premise location with my brother-in-law and the Goomba’s (more about them later). I really enjoyed the experience and the beer I was able to produce. I next got to try my hand at more creations with my Father’s Day brewing kit. Thanks kids!
The Goomba’s, a mixture of family members and friends, all enjoyed the beer. I could count on them for tastings and feedback. They always came back for more.
Next I moved to all grain in a converted 10-gallon lobster pot and a Coleman 50 qt cooler. I educated myself as much as possible and started to produce homebrew that I and everyone else seemed to want to drink. I continued to brew.
The mantra kept getting stronger; open a brewery and brew great beer. So began the journey from Homebrewer to Professional brewer. I study at the Siebel Institute of Technology, America’s premier brewing educator, and received a degree in Brewing Technologies in mid 2014. To further my understanding of the myriad of beers and beer styles I studied, tasted a boat load of beer, some great and some dreadful, and became a BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) Certified Beer Judge. From this our beliefs that beer should be tasty, fun, and satisfying and come in a variety of styles were born.
