Wes

Serial Brewer & Customer Service Specialist

Wes
Wes has had an intense interest in brewing craft beer for ages. His brother, a brewer at Hair of the Dog in Portland Oregon, as well as the head brewer at Alameda Brewhouse, a local brewpub, first introduced Wes to craft beer during summer trips to Oregon when he was younger. After graduating with a degree in Communication from Indiana University, Wes went to Korea to teach English. Unable to find a good beer in the country, Wes soon turned to home brewing to produce his much-loved ales. Upon returning to the states, his interest took off, and he continued brewing incessantly while taking biology and chemistry classes at IUPUI. As of 2014 he has been brewing for seven years. Known around Great Fermentations as a serial brewer, he produces a vast array of different beers, as well as wine, mead and cider.

Fun Fact: Wes once hitchhiked across the galaxy for three and a half years while wearing nothing but a bathrobe and underpants. When his disgruntled alien hosts dropped him back off on Earth, he was multilingual and could taste colors.

Due to the recent surge in COVID cases across the country, especially in our home state of Indiana, starting Friday November 20th we are switching to curbside pickup and online shipping service only. No customers will be allowed in the store. We will maintain the same store hours during this phase. We’re trying to do our part in helping get the virus under control, and we appreciate your understanding. Follow the link in our bio for more info about the curbside pickup process.
Kegging day for our Nordic Smoked beer. Thanks to @sugarcreekmaltco for the malt and @crazyhorsehops for the hops!

Total of 11oz of dry hops added at high krausen. The yeast has dropped out a ton on this beer after 5 days, but it is still hazy 🤪🍻👌. Should be kegged, carbonated, and ready to drink by this Friday (8 day turnaround for an 8.5%)!
Test batch for our next IPA kit. The smell in here is amaaaaaaazing 😍🍺🍻
