Previous to starting his own brewing company, Brad had been developing his brewing skills for many years, first as an award winning homebrewer, and then as a small scale commercial brewer in Toronto.
With early beginnings in homebrewing, Brad quickly became recognized for his talent and creativity in brewing, winning two back to back “Best of Show” honours in the Canadian Amateur Brewers Association (CABA) competitions of 2010 and 2011. Along with a multitude of other homebrewing awards, both locally and nationally, and two Pro-Am collaborations with Beau’s All Natural Brewing, Brad quickly established a reputation as one of Ontario’s top homebrewers.
No longer satisfied to only make great beer for himself, Brad began brewing for Get Well Bar in Toronto in late 2012, setting up a two barrel brewhouse in the bar (then brewpub) and brewing dozens of unique craft beers of varying styles. An early adopter of the nano-brewing model, Brad made his mark on Toronto’s brew scene back when brewpubs were still a relative scarcity in the city, and the Ontario craft beer renaissance had just begun. These years allowed Brad to further experiment with his recipes and hone his craft on a commercial system, while also winning a number of professional brewing awards.
