1. Where is your brewery?
We currently have a brewery in Tulsa, but recently purchased 17 acres south of town that we are building a farm brewery and tasting room.
2. What was the first beer you had that made you realize craft beer was going to bigger part of your life?
I had an Orval in college and started brewing a week later.
3. What is your favorite style to brew and why?
I like to brew stouts and beers with big hits of malt like C120 and Special B. The smell those malts make when hitting the mash are awesome!
4. If you were stranded on an island (with a working refrigerator that automatically replenished itself) and you could only have one beer for the rest of your life in that fridge, which would it be?
5. What is your favorite music to listen to in the brewery?
I've been into Jamestown Revival lately, but Bob Seger seems to play daily.
6. Which other brewery has inspired you the most? Why?
I'd say Saint Somewhere. Bob's minimalist approach has inspired me on how to do a lot with a little. We currently use a skateboard in the brewery.
7. Single hop beer - which hops are you using?
Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Mosaic.
8. Where is your favorite place to get a beer after work and why?
I like to back my truck up our pond around 8 when the sun is setting. We pop a couple 750's and sit on the tailgate.
9. What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone who thinks they want to get into the craft beer industry?
Don't open a brewery unless you are qualified enough to work in one.
10. Dogs or cats?
Dogs. I've got two Boston Terriers.
