Jeff McCullor is the President and Co-owner of Erie Ale Works, a craft brewery that opened in 2014 and is known for small batch beer, beards, and a side of sarcasm. With partner Steve Anthony, Erie Ale Works keeps six rotating beers on tap, including crowd favorites Tattooed Lady and Nexus of the Universe. Unique events like Mind, Body, Beer and the 0.01K keep it interesting and partnerships with local food trucks pair local food with local beer when Erie blesses us with nice weather. They aren't the biggest brewery on the Lake Erie Ale Trail, but they might be the only one that can guarantee that the brewers are your bartenders.
Jeff's presentation will include:
- How it all began: Defining a new business and getting out of the garage...and into a bigger garage
- The project of brewing a batch: Scheduling production to keep up with thirsty customers
- Doing more with less: Kickstarter, brewers are your bartenders, and partnerships
- What's next?
