HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE BREWING INDUSTRY?

I started with home brewing. I had been interested in homebrewing for a long time. I had a coworker who was a BJCP judge who encouraged me to go for it! I have loved it ever since.

WHAT DID YOU DO IN YOUR LIFE PRE-MAP?

I started in Biotech, then transitioned into being a distiller before brewing. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEER?

Besides everything, probably the craft. What I love most is being able to create something (that is totally badass) and experience the fruit of my labor and creativity. Outside of that, probably beers ability to bring people together.
