MEET THE TEAM

Judy is a Certified Cicerone and longtime homebrewer living the dream. She helped found Baltimore Beer Babes, a craft beer appreciation group bringing more women into the fold and is a proud member of the Pink Boots Society. She has a PhD in microbiology from The Johns Hokpins School of Public Health, so she isn’t afraid of scientific side of brewing, but firmly believes that the creative side and understanding of the ingredients are just as important.

As a child, Steve began brewing at home with his father which fueled his passion for craft beer.  He started the cask program at Heavy Seas, now the largest cask program in the country, which has earned him the nickname “The Cask Whisperer”. He has consulted for several area breweries and specializes in sourcing local ingredients and improving beer quality.

Rob has been a longtime craft beer lover and may even love great beer a little more every day. As the founder of Neff Rehabs, renovating rowhomes in Baltimore, he brings his entrepreneurial spirit, construction skills and muscles to the brewery.

How did we end up starting a brewery?

Judy and Rob first met through mutual friends at a party over some beers. While they both drank Natty Boh at first, as their relationship grew, so did their taste for more flavorful beers. After they visited Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco, Judy became inspired to start brewing at home. Brewing in the kitchen then moved to the basement and both of them started drinking new and different beers. Steve bonded with his father as a boy helping him homebrew in the backyard using a kit brought back from a London pharmacy. This love of brewing continued as he grew up and eventually led him to Heavy Seas where he started the cask program, now the largest in the USA. As Judy and Rob started exploring the new world of beer, they soon met Steve at a cask beer event. He introduced them to cask beer and the rest is history. Beer is a unifier that brings people together.
