Dan Western is the head brewer and one of the founders. He started out enjoying craft brew in college and that led him to home brewing, where he developed his craft in all-grain brewing. He keeps the beer production moving along with sips of every batch for quality control purposes, of course. After working in construction and then teaching Technology Education for many years, the draw of beer became so strong that he jumped in with both feet, tossing everything else out the window. When he isn't working at the brewery, you can find him riding motorcycles or working in his workshop crafting up something crazy.
