  • I started brewing in 94 while I lived in Tacoma Wa. Frome there I moved to Suffolk England and got hooked on all grain and the British style of brewing, the was a brewery called Nethergate just down the road and I spent alot of time there watching and learning. Then it was on to North Dakota where I discovered Northern Brewer and Midwest Brewing, it was about this time I discovered the joy of kegging, I built my first keggorator and haven't turned back. Noe I am in Okinawa Japan and I am just getting settled and trying to source out supplies to start brewing.
