The Unsung Brewer
Brewing Exceptional Beers Behind the Scenes
In the modern brewing industry, especially in the United States, there are celebrity brewers. Known by their first names, fans line up at festivals for pictures and a pour from the likes of Sam, Jim, Garrett, Vinnie, Ken, Matt and more. For every one of these well-known names, there are dozens more operating behind the scenes, making flavorful, conceptual beers of exceptional quality, albeit without the same level of recognition.
Each year All About Beer Magazine publishes a feature on people in the industry. This year we asked our regular contributors, industry insiders and readers to tell us about the “Unsung Brewers”: the heroes of wort, barrel aging and general production. The following profiles reflect just a small percentage of the many talented professionals who make beer but may be largely unknown by name.
