A code monkey for 20 years, Kevin spoke Ruby, Java, and database-ese at numerous technology companies big and small. When he discovered microbrews and European imports, things suddenly made sense. He honed his brewing skills at Metropolitan Brewing, 5 Rabbit, and a degree from Siebel Institute, all while brewing at home. He lives with his wife and two cats in Chicago and likes gardening when he isn’t working the tap handles.
From Ohio, to Purdue, to Chicago. Dave made his way through various tech startups as a sub-par programmer and adequate CTO. His 20 years of homebrewing started as wanting cheaper beer, then good beer, and finally a new career. Dave furthered his beer education with three Belgium trips, BJCP certification, Siebel certification, and one year volunteering at Metropolitan Brewery. He has traveled the world and is at 16 countries and counting.
