Last Day at the Brewery

Final handover, process review from grain to glass, and fresh, warm donuts. Somehow I missed the let’s all get drunk, eat and celebrate part, but I will be ‘there’ a few days a week as I am getting use of office space during the discovery and planning phases. So there will be plenty of time to have a few beers with the old team.

Taking a few days off now for a mental health break. Really, it will be a mindset shift. I work for me now. Well, my family and likely the bank, the investors… I am very much looking forward to this. I am much more prepared to do this than I was just 2 years ago when I took that first leap out of the cube farm. What I have now are a bazillion questions and a dozen answers for each.

Where will it be?
Depends.

Do you have a name for your brewery?
Depends.

How big?
Depends.

Sounds like I am back in beer school. Lot’s to do. Lot’s more to learn. Thanks to every one who has been a part of the ride so far, we are just beginning.

Twist the wick, dump the clutch, time to burn rubber.

So It Begins…

Just over two years ago, I landed my first job in craft beer. Within a few months, I was not on the deck brewing, I became the Head Brewer for a local brewery. I told myself, I wanted two years running a brewery under my belt before I attempted my own.

Here we are.

As I celebrate SF Beer Week, I will get to do the parade lap as the Head Brewer for Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company, enjoy the company of my team and start to take those first steps in opening my brewery. I look forward to bringing a unique brewery experience to you in the very near future.

​KSU. Here we go…
