What’s your current position at your brewery, and how did you get started in the craft brewing industry?
I’m an assistant brewer and the head cellarman at Line Creek Brewing Co. in Peachtree City, Ga. I got my start in craft beer as a server at Taco Mac learning about all the different styles and becoming a full-on beer nerd.
What’s new at Line Creek?
We have a ton of really cool things happening right now, most notably our Total Consciousness Double IPA Series.
What’s the best part of being a part of the craft brewing community?
Drinking all the delicious beers from all the great craft breweries and being able to take inspiration from what’s out there to become more creative with what we brew.
Name a favorite food and beer pairing.
Wings and a great clean lager.
What’s your biggest accomplishment unrelated to your job?
Recently became a pro mini golf player!
What’s your favorite beer from another brewery?
Rapturous from Three Taverns Brewery.
What do you like to do in your time away from the brewery?
I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible, whether I’m floating down the Chattahoochee with some friends throwing back a few cold ones or hiking Blood Mountain.
What’s the most memorable travel destination at which you’ve had a chance to sample the local beer?
Last year I was able to travel to San Francisco. I took a day trip to Santa Rosa to the iconic Russian River Brewing and was simply amazed at the beers they put out.
