Justin - Bar Manager & Beertender
a
a
Justin was an air force kid so he lived in a lot of places growing up. He was raised in Texas, but spent most of his childhood and college years in Cheyenne, Wyoming. He moved to Colorado in 2004 and lived in Longmont until 2015, when he moved to Dacono with his wife and son. Outside of the brewery, he loves to be in the kitchen or in front of the BBQ (he's not shy about his love for meat). He is also a long time member of a world wide historical recreation organization called the "society for creative anachronism", which is where he can show his love for medieval history. Justin really enjoys working at MCB, and was an early member of the team. He has been in the service industry for most of his life but says that this opportunity for him to learn and grow is what really brought him here.
