Always a thorough expert at things off the beaten path, Davin excelled in origami and cooking as shorty, later navigating obscure college classes to become a double major in psychology and anthropology. Like a fish out of water he flopped around in career world gasping for air he could not breathe through his brewer gills before making his passionate, all-consuming homebrewing pastime into a legitimate career. This lead Davin to the World Brewing Academy (Siebel Institute of Technology – Chicago, IL & Doemen’s Academy – Munich, Germany) where he was salutatorian, 6+ Years Professional Brewmaster with Rock Bottom Chicago, award winning brewer in Great American Beer Festival, World Beer Cup, Festival of Wood & Barrel Aged Beer and more. Davin is also a B level racquetball player with a robotic backhand.
