I grew up near Shelbyville, IN and graduated from Purdue with a degree in Aviation Technology. After 24 years of flying as a commercial pilot, I decided that being home every night to see my family was more important.
I began brewing beer in 1993 with a can of hopped LME and dry yeast taped to the can. After a few brews with mixed results, I took a hiatus until 2013 when Great Fermentations moved in around the corner. I was amazed by the availability of ingredients and how much the equipment had improved. I enjoy learning about brewing/winemaking and passing that knowledge on to customers. Customer service is a huge part of our industry and our staff at the Avon store will do everything possible to provide a great shopping experience. Stop in and say Hi sometime!
