I’d like to be able to fly because I like to go fast, and I want to dunk on people all day.
Chris Farley. I would love to have a lot of beers and pizza with him.
Petal Weisse, the hibiscus Berliner-weisse sour SBC brewed last year. I’ve been into into sours for a while because they are refreshing and complex.
I’ve lived in Springfield for the most amount of time compared to many other places I’ve lived. I recently relocated back to Springfield after living in Colorado.
In Colorado, craft beer is a lifestyle. In Springfield, the scene is developing very quickly. There are some excellent brews around town, and I believe it is a solid scene that could rival any city. There is a lot of potential here, and I’m excited to be a part of it.
I was introduced to craft beer in college, and it quickly became an obsession. Fermentation science was really interesting to me. I started in the beer industry in the packaging side of things about six years ago. When I moved to Colorado, I got the opportunity to become a brewer, and I love it.
Hibiscus is one of my favorites, as well as blood oranges, Thai Basil, and sour cherries.
Not a lot of people know that I was in the infantry for six years.
