Derek has been brewing award winning craft beer creations since 2011. After receiving a Mr. Beer Kit for Christmas in 2010, Derek began dabbling in homebrewing. Within a few short months, he purchased the appropriate homebrew supplies and began making his own wild concoctions. Early favorites included his Yuzu IPA, Pumpkinhead Ale and Tropical Passion IPA. Derek was eager to learn more about craft beer. After reading multiple books about brewing, he studied for the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) Examination and became a Recognized BJCP Judge in 2014. Derek judged multiple homebrew competitions and became a Certified BJCP Judge in 2015. To date, Derek has received 111 awards from all 50 states with 47 different beers. With a bachelor's degree in Business Administration/Marketing and a career in medical sales, Derek loves the science behind making beer.

Prior to her Human Resources career, Elaine worked over 8 years in the restaurant industry, having worked almost every job in a restaurant. She has always wanted to be an entrepreneur and run her own business, so along with Derek's brewing aspirations, a future brewpub seemed to be the perfect fit. Elaine came up with our goal of winning a brewing award in each of the 50 states and is in the process of studying for the BJCP Beer Judge Examination.
