Head Cellarman | Chris Golden

Meet our Head Cellarman, Chris Golden. When he’s not hard at work brewing up experimental test batches for the Keeping Room, keeping the fermenters just the right kind of cozy, and cleaning all the things, you can find Chris traveling to remote places for beer-cation, and tasting the results of his homebrew side projects with his lovely wife Melinda.

Current Beer Crush

My current beer crush is one of our Pioneer recipes the Black IPA. I’ve always been an IPA fan, but as the winter months come around I start to go for darker beers. This beer has everything I’m looking for this time of the year. Dark in color, a strong roasted malt presence, and a hop aroma to satisfy any hop head.

Reformed Beer Pairing

I’m always a sucker for Atlas and a basket of hot wings. The hotter the better. If I’m not crying, it’s not hot enough. And blue cheese is a must.
