Deep Thoughts: The first thing that I learned about brewing is that it is hardly as glamorous as many non-brewer beer enthusiasts think. I’d say that I spend most of my days soaked by either beer or water, 60% of my time cleaning something, 25% of my time trying to fix something that should be working, but for some reason has decided to break, 10% of my time actually formulating recipes and making beer, and about 5% of my time doing math. But I do hope you enjoy our offerings. Cheers!!

Best Concert you’ve attended: The Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well in Santa Clara, CA with Trey Anastasio from Phish (comepletley unexpected, I attended both shows and got the call for the tickets the day before)
Deep Thoughts: Having careers in multiple industries, mainly mechanically based, I have come to respect the brewing industry and its workers tremendously. It is far more than a leisure experience, but more of an indefinite test of ones creativity, mechanical ability, scientific understanding and what I have come to find to be the most important, patience. I am honored to be both, part of a tradition that is not only world wide but has withstood the test of time, as well as being surrounded by the people I love and carefully try to perfect my craft for. Cheers!

Best Concert you’ve attended: DONT MAKE ME CHOOSE! ummm…toss up between Le Tigre in 2002 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco & finally getting to see Beck after waiting 16 years flail around on a small stage in Monterey, Ca in 2015.
Deep Thoughts: Being in the craft beer industry in, what is arguably the craft beer MECCA, is kind of an amazing thing. Every day I thank my lucky stars that these guys brought me on board to help spread the gospel of Silver Moon. I love being a part of a small family that not only cares about making great beer, but also cares about the community and those who help us grow along the way. Plus its a lot cheaper to live here than in the Bay Area!
