After 6 years of being an avid homebrewer, Ian was hired at Bend Brewing Co. as a keg washer. He spent the next five years absorbing all of the knowledge he could about the finer aspects of brewing. He then worked his way up to being the assistant of 10 Barrel’s very own Tonya Cornett, who at the time was working at Bend Brewing Co. In 2012 he took over the Brewmaster role at Bend Brewing Co. and after five years in the Captain’s chair he decided to work at 10 Barrel so he could keep his passion for creating unique beers alive. Ian loves using ingredients in beer that no one has ever heard of, let alone used. He has been awarded over 50 medals at international beer competitions in his career thus far. In his spare time he enjoys time at his cabin in the Elkhorn Mountains, split–boarding, hiking, cooking, and of course drinking beer.
