Kurt & Colin (owners)

Both Kurt and Colin share a deep passion for quality craft beer, but and the picture shows, we don’t take ourselves too seriously…life is too short to be pretentious!

Kurt was an engineer for many years at International Paper and General Electric, then changed careers and became a teacher. After a 13 year period of homebrewing and being a teacher (is there a link here ;), Kurt retired from teaching to run the brewery full time. A former hockey player and competitive rower, Kurt is now developing his Dad bod, or is it a Brewer bod? If Kurt isn’t at the brewery, he’s either coaching hockey or hanging out with his family.

Colin has been a teacher for 20 years. With extensive travels abroad, Colin was exposed to great beers in his formative years. With 25 years of brewing experience, he’s great at developing new, innovative recipies. In Colin’s spare time he enjoys spending time with his family at Lake Desolation.
