Sr. Head Brewer
Justin started in the kitchen of the first Iron Hill location in 1996. In the summer of 1998, he ventured into the brewery and never left. He has been a Head Brewer at Iron Hill since 2002 collecting awards at all the major beer competitions. He loves grabbing a seat at the bar after work, elbow to elbow with customers, and sharing his opinions about sports and beer.
Justin began homebrewing while pursuing a career in electrical engineering. Curiosity set in and he wanted to learn more about the science behind brewing beer, so he enrolled at UC Davis in their Master Brewing Program. Justin got a job as an Assistant Brewer at Dock Street Brewing and before long, he became the Head Brewer there. Justin joined Iron Hill West Chester in 2019 as the Head Brewer and proudly brewed Philly Special as his first Iron Hill beer. While he can’t pick a favorite style to brew, he admits that IPA seems the most flexible allowing hops to create various flavors or adding various flavors to the beer. As for consuming, he enjoys all beer styles… basically whatever has the freshest can date!
