Founder, Proprietor, Brewmaster
My current passion or focus:
Opening our west Knoxville location/production facility and our sour barrel program
I was a high school math teacher at Austin-East High School
Wine making, cycling, and being outdoors as much as possible.
Why I brew/distill:
It is a perfect blend of math, chemistry, and art that really engages both sides of my brain.
Why I teach at BDC:
Because I love teaching others about the things I am passionate about. I love seeing students brains fire up when they realize something as basic as water can have such a defining impact on the quality, taste and characteristic of any beer style.
