In this episode I talk with Zachary Typinski from the upcoming, Neighborhood Brewing Co. Urbanrest Brewing Co. in Ferndale, Michigan.
Zachary has years of experience throughout the beer industry. He has worked in merchandising and retail, distribution and sales. He’s also a draft certified technician, Certified Cicerone®, BJCP Novice Judge, and an award-winning homebrewer.
Currently Zachary is the Michigan sales manager for Oskar Blues Brewery, and he is in the process of opening his own brewery.
He shares creative ideas for “getting liquid to lips,” and what it takes to bring beer “from grain to glass.”
He shares his breadth of knowledge on a range of topics including:
- Keeping clean draft lines
- What it’s like to see his award-winning homebrew go into production and be widely distributed
