John is a native of Charlotte and started brewing on his 20th birthday, when his brother bought him a home brew starter kit. Shortly after brewing his first batch, he was hooked. He immersed himself within literature, studies, and experiments leading him to eventually completing the associates program in brewing technology at the World Brewing Academy. While working at the local home brew shop in Charlotte, he met Townes. 2013 was a big year for John, he married the love of his life, Sarah and joined the Lenny Boy Crew. John heads up our traditional beer brewing facility.
