Alex started Home brewing when he was 18 with his Father and quickly realized that he wanted to become a professional brewer. He passed the Cicerone Exam a few months after his 21st birthday and at the time he was the youngest ever to obtain that certification. He first started at Finch’s Brewing Co in packaging and eventually moved onto Two Brothers starting in the packhall department then worked all the way up to Head Brewer. During that time, Alex took a sabbatical from Two Brothers and attended the Siebel Institute of Technology earning the Master Brewer Certification. Through that program he studied at the Doemens Academy in Graefelfing, Germany. Now at 93 Octane his vision is to brew WORLD CLASS American and German Style Beers through innovations in the brewing process that he has been developing for the past five years.
