Christian began his brewing career in his parents kitchen. He received 5 credits for a brewing internship at Oregon Fields Brewery during his senior year at University of Oregon School of Business. After impressing the head brewer at West Brothers Brewery with his kettle scrubbing skills he was soon hired. With three years running West Brothers Brewery under his belt, Christian ventured to Davis, California to complete the Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering course from the American Brewers Guild. A head brewing position with Old World Pub & Brewery soon followed. Old World transitioned into Laurelwood Public House & Brewery where Christian was honored with 2004 World Beer Cup Champion Brewmaster. Christian enjoys traveling the world with Brandie, his wife of ten years, and can say with certainty that his 2 year old son Julian was conceived after a great evening at U Fleku in Prague. Cycling, snowboarding and backpacking are means to the perfect pint!
