Tonya Cornett first discovered beer in the mid 90’s in Colorado and began home brewing. After working multiple brewery jobs and deciding that beer was something she was serious about she traveled to Germany to attend the World Brewing Academy. She moved to Bend in 2002 and assumed the brewmaster position at Bend Brewing Company which she held for 10 years bringing home a heap of medals to Central Oregon. Her first of many accolades came in 2006 when she won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival for Hop Head in the American IPA category (typically the largest category every year). In 2012 Tonya joined the 10 Barrel team as our Brewmaster of Research and Development and has been cranking out stacks of award winning recipes, including her Crush series of sour beers, since then. When she’s not developing cutting edge beers she runs a beer shop in Sunriver alongside her husband. Needless to say, Tonya is one badass brewer!
