I started home brewing when my wife bought a beer kit for my birthday, and I’ve been loving it ever since. I came from managing a paint store before getting an offer to work at Great Fermentations; I decided ultimately to sell something I loved rather than hated. I truly enjoy working here because I am able to learn a lot about the hobby from my fellow staff and even our customers. I also like being able to aid people when they are first getting into the hobby. It’s such a rewarding hobby and I like to make sure people know all they need to make a good beer or wine. My bread and butter is a good American Pale ale with a citrus punch, but since starting here, I’ve really started to enjoy making wine. My cellar currently has 175-ish bottles, with more on the way!
Fun Fact: One thing people may not know about me is that I spent a year in Africa hunting snakes. I have a large collection of snake skin boots, belts, and even hats :)
