Meet Ben Wood, Brewer and Cellarman

Name: Ben Wood
Social Media: Ben Wood

What brought you to the brewing industry?

Years of working in the service industry slowly convincing me that there had to be a better way.

Which craft beer first opened your eyes to the complexities of beer?

Sierra Nevada Pale but then was quickly introduced to sour beer by a friend and I think that is when it all changed for me.

People would be surprised to know:

I can put both feet behind my head.
What do you do when you’re not working?
Disc Golf, Fishing, Gardening, Eating, Gaming, Sleeping, and general tinkering.

What do you enjoy most about the brewing industry?

The shared love of quality, fun and over-driven passion.

What brought you to Collective?

One of the pre-launches that I happened to be working at The Bearded Lady. Petite Golden Sour did it and I quit my job right there. Two weeks later I walked into the brewery and just never really left.
