Ben Shirley

Jun 29, 2016

Benny got his start in the restaurant industry after moving to Oregon from SoCal. No brewing experience, just a rad dude with a great attitude snowboarding and enjoying life in Bend. Coming from a pub setting he soon decided brewing beer sounded like an awesome way to make a buck and made his way into production brewing. Working from the ground up filling kegs,  Jimmy saw his potential early on and when the opportunity arose, Benny jumped ship from one of the larger breweries in town to work for 10 Barrel and has been crushing it ever since. Benny has proved his prowess with badass beers such as Riding Solo and Throwback Oatmeal Stout, and by running the brewhouse of our San Diego pub for several years, creating delicious beers and catching waves on his longboard. All that to say, we are lucky to have Benny back in Bend concocting new, innovative recipes at our HQ!
