Lead Brewer | Paul Hamill
Meet our Lead Brewer, Paul Hamill. A microbiologist and little known mastermind behind our Imperial Stout, when Paul’s not counting yeast cells, keeping tabs on quality assurance, and greasing the wheels on all things stuck around the brewery, you’ll find him tending to his home garden, pairing up his favorite curry with his favorite company, and telling jokes like the true Irishman he is.
Current Beer Crush
Last night I blew the dust off an old bottle of our Belgian Tripel which had been aged in a bourbon barrel for about 10 months, blended with some fresh Jude and then bottle conditioned. Rocked me to my socks, matured like a fine Irishman I know quite well.
Reformed Beer Pairing
If you ever get a chance try J. Miller’s beef brisket which he slow smokes and then cooks down in Cadence and serves it all up in a taco. To die for but not on his regular menu. Other than that I love Union with a Chicken Vindaloo or other spicy Indian dishes.
Best Moment in Beer
Drinking a Declaration on the screen-porch on a spring evening watching the deer eat all the stuff I just planted. Helps me stay calm and in the moment.
