OUR BREWERS ARE PART OF THE RICH HISTORY THAT MAKES UP WYNKOOP BREWING COMPANY
Come in and meet a few of the top Denver brewers. But better grab a chair – they can talk about beer and all things beer-related all day long.
Jay joined the Wynkoop team in late 2014 as a packaging line operator. His love of beer pulled him away from a long career in Aquaculture and his home state, Massachusetts. Excited to learn anything and everything, he quickly became cellarman and eventually assistant brewer. He also loves rock climbing, fly fishing, and hiking his way through Colorado.
John began brewing in 1993 at the first brewpub in Dallas, Texas. He later joined the team at the award-winning Copper Tank Brewing Company, assuming the position of Head Brewer in 1998. More recently as Brewmaster he spearheaded the opening of Four Corners Brewing Company, focusing on system design and recipe formulation. John has been an active member Craft Brewers Association of Texas, holding the position of President from 1998-2000. He has an International Diploma in Brewing Technology from the World Brewing Academy, Seibel Institute of Technology/Doemens Akademie. He clearly has a true passion for brewing and its underlying sciences.
Charles came to Colorado for the same reason that all self-respecting transplants do: beer. He arrived with a degree in Nutrition & Food Sciences from Florida State University and an affinity for homebrew, and was overjoyed to clean Wynkoop’s kegs. He’s since become an assistant brewer at Wynkoop who works hard not to drink all the Colorojo Imperial Red Ale before it’s available to customers. Charles is the proud puppy parent of Lil Miss Ida.
