The brewing bug hit me early on when I was 19. Most of my friends were attending culinary school (and would eventually become chefs in NYC) and I was always jealous of their creative career path. I made the leap and attended brewing school at Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago and Doemens Academie in Munich. After several months of travel in Europe I returned to the US and attained a Certificate in Brewing from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling based in London. With these in hand I was finally able to get my foot in the door at a small brewery in Connecticut cleaning tanks. After several years I climbed the ranks and eventually became head brewer. Seeking more knowledge, I then took a position at Brooklyn Brewery in New York. This was my introduction to wood aging beer and I was immediately hooked. I was on a quick work trip to the Nya Carnegie brewery in Stockholm when I fell in love with Scandinavia. Around the same time, Nøgne Ø was looking to take their barrel aging program to the next level. I am excited to say that it became a perfect fit and I could not be more proud to be working with some of the most talented brewers and passionate colleagues I have ever had the chance of knowing. I look forward to pushing the boundaries of what we know barrel aged beer to be and to be constantly innovating.
