Brian started out in the culinary world but made the switch to brewing in 2010, becoming Volunteer Assistant Brewer to Davin at Rockbottom in Chicago. While the brewing world has not brought Brian any exotic experiences like opening a Mongolian restaurant in Mongolia (he did that), it did bring him to us in Memphis, and we couldn't make delicious beer without him. As he says in the video, he is "the mom" of WISEACRE beer, managing and taking care of its every need for 2-5 weeks before sending it on to packaging and out into the world.
Brian will tell you all about it and much more in this almost 8 minute video (cut down considerably). He goes "big on words", challenging the makers of Mountain Dew to challenge him, sings a little, graciously forgives five year olds, talks way too much about the drummer from The Police, references the Hot Dog and Sausage Council and explains Malort.
Join us for a tour of our brewery that includes WISEACRE history, beer history, the science behind the ingredients and processes involved in making great beer.
