Our Brewers

The most fun you can have with a microbiology degree.

Damian McConn

Damian McConn, Head Brewer

More than 15 years ago, Damian made the enlightened decision to leave the European brewing industry for the bright lights of Minnesota. In addition to his regular brewing duties, Damian supervises the production of our cask-conditioned ales. He also routinely examines our beers to make sure they’re within specification.

Dog person or cat person?
Neither. Likes dogs, but has been bitten 3 times so he’d rather have a horse.

Beer Cred:

  • Honors Degree, Brewing and Distilling, Heriot Watt University, Scotland
  • Member of American Society of Brewing Chemists
  • Member of Institute of Brewing and Distilling, London
  • He’s Irish
