Our Director of Brewing Operations Jimmy Valm is fond of saying that he can teach anyone to work on our crew and brew beer, but a love for craft beer can’t be taught.

Every so often, though, we’re lucky to come across someone who has both: previous education and a love for beer. And Jimmy’s smart enough to snatch that person up when he’s given the chance.

And that guy happened to be in the right place at the right time: Sean McGuirl.
