Born and raised in a small town of Crofton, MD. Population just under 20,000
“It’s a little place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of the Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Crofton.”
– Rick Posinski
Like many, I was given a home brew kit for Christmas. I took a gift and turned a dream into my passion. After relocating to New Jersey, I quit building elevators of 8 years to intern at a local brewery in North Bergen, NJ called New Jersey Beer Co.
From there, I was offered a job at Palmetto Brewing Company in Charleston, SC. I was fortunate to work side by side with some very talented brewers. While At Palmetto, I attended American Brewers Guild and studied Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering.
After some time in the south my passion and hunger grew for something greater. Come to find out, Honolulu Beerworks was looking to expand their production throughout Oahu. Needless to say, 4765 miles later I was their new brewer. While there I noticed a huge rise in craft breweries and the people who LOVE it. I decided to step away from brewing and start Honolulu Brews Cruise, with the intent to educate and grow this bustling community.
