Meet Our Brew Master

Learn more about who makes GP Brewing Co. great.

World, meet our brew master – Jim. Joining us all the way from Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, this coffee-obsessed English major was first introduced to the brewing industry while he was working in film. After obtaining his brewing education from Olds College, Jim began home brewing. It was not long before his talent was noticed and he was joining the GP Brewing Co. team. When Jim is not drinking beer {or coffee} he can be found watching "the big Lebowski" or killin' it on his electric guitar. And ladies, he's fresh on the market — so if you like musicians, coffee or beer. Jim is your man.

We're not trying to brag or anything, but some have said that Jim is the next "Wayne Gretzky" of brewing.
