Why I brew/distill:

Brewing is a wonderful industry that challenges my mind and body to apply a myriad of skills I have learned over the years. No matter how much I learn about brewing, there is always more to continue learning. It's an ancient and noble trade in my opinion to be able to produce something that ties together land and people.

Why I teach at BDC:

Teaching is something I never thought I would wind up doing in a professional manner. However, I have found great reward in sharing my experiences and knowledge with those who seek to work in this industry. It's a passionate and lively bunch!
