Our Brewer

Nick Wisniewski joined 93 Octane after a 5-year stint as Head Brewer of Off Color Brewing in Chicago and we could not be more excited. Prior to Off Color, Nick spent two years as Head Brewer for Mayday Brewery located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee just outside of Nashville. He also spent time at multiple well known Chicago breweries including Metropolitan and Goose Island. Nick received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Dominican University along with graduating from the WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology at Siebel Institute. Needless to say, our taps are in good hands
