First and most importantly, he LOVES cats, specifically his and Mrs. Hofmann's cat Blue. Aside from that defining trait, he is a homegrown Milwaukee boy who was initially on track for a career in the medical industry. However, after homebrewing for several years, he changed course and decided to pursue his ‘Waterslide’! Sound familiar?
His brewing career started with Lakefront Brewery as an intern and brewer, before going to UC Davis for some technical brewing training and earning his IBD Brewing Diploma. After a stint at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, he moved back home to work at Lakefront once again as Quality Manager for several years. The desire to work for a small, passionate brewery led him to us and we’re thrilled to have him!
