  • OT-CBC in April

    Just found out I get to be part of the team representing the company I work for at the Craft Brewer's Conference in Denver this April. It's been so long since I've been to Denver, I'm really excited! Hopefully I can take a tour of SAF @ Mile High and see our 3 Lombardis.

    You would be disappointed, The Lombardi's are located at corporate headquarter in Dove Valley.

        Good call, I was trying to keep it somewhat on topic and I failed. Thanks for keeping me in line.

          I was just preparing to grill you about where you got 3 Lombardis from, and then realized you're a better fan than me.

                  You don't want to go to [email protected] anyhow, they would make you sit down and not be excited about the trophies.

                    So how does one go about getting a job in the craft brewing industry?

                        It's a big industry, what part do you want to get in on? I work in manufacturing, we design and build custom cellar and brewhouse equipment.

                        If you want to get into brewing I think there are people on this board with a lot more expertise than I have. Brewer and BFDD, for example.

                        Then there's always sales, marketing, distribution, farming (hops, barley...etc), biology (yeast strains), packaging, maintenance... kind of a long list.

                          I've seen a lot of comments like this lately. I haven't been to a home game in years, is it really that bad now? I'm a very loud, never sit down kinda fan and SAF sounds like you're watching a football game in church.

                            I was mocking really, I personally have never had this experience but there have been reports that the majority of the stadium is like that. I can't confirm it, but I personally think it's bull****.

                              there's a lot of ways I could go. I'm a mechanical engineer so I could definitely get into designing brewhouse equipment, but I'm also a homebrewer working on upping my game.

                              my general plan right now is to keep on doing what i'm doing until my kids are out of the house (10-12 years from now), at which point I want to get into brewing full-time - or at least the brewing industry. I want the end of my professional career to be something more fun than what I'm doing now.
