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.
