Mark S. Tayor, Co-Owner/ Director of Brewing and Production
Nine years ago Mark received a homebrew kit for Christmas. He never opened the package but the concept of making beer for personal consumption sparked his curiosity. A few months later Mark found himself wandering around in a local homebrew store and within 45 minutes of the visit he was armed with enough equipment and knowledge to make his first batch of beer. Although he admits the beer wasn’t the best tasting he had ever had it launched him into his new passion. During the last eight years, he has been perfecting his craft beer recipes and techniques not only hands on but by studying and seeking guidance from local master brewers. He designed and manufactured his first brewhouse with a capacity output of 1/2 Barrel (15.5 gallons) although the system was small in nature it wasn’t ordinary. It was a sophisticated and highly efficient system using a variety of stainless tanks, high pressure pumps and electronic temperature controls all within the confines of his garage. He used this small system as a testing ground for not only for what will soon become award winning craft brew recipes but a training ground on brewery operations. In January of 2013 with the help of a manufacturer in Santa Rosa, California Mark designed his first commercial sized brewhouse. The new system’s capacity rose to 10 Barrels (331 gallons). With a few adjustments, he was able to replicate the same flavors and consistencies as he did with the smaller system. With this experience his confidence has grown and he can’t wait to share his recipes with the world.
