To that end, we have brought on Rob Mullin as our latest addition to the Brew Team as Production Manager.

Born in Munich, Germany and the descent of a long line of moonshiners, bootleggers, and speakeasy owners, Rob Mullin was a political campaign manager in a former life. D.C. burn out and a chance encounter with a home-brew starter kit changed that forever. A true Renaissance man, Rob got his start in the beer industry driving trucks for Old Dominion Brewing Company right here in Virginia. Under the tutelage of John Mallet (of Bell’s Brewing) and Ron Barchet (of Victory Brewing), Rob began his new life as a craft brewer bouncing from Virginia to Manhattan to the Tap Rock Restaurant and Brewery in New Jersey. In 2002, he escaped the East Coast to become the head brewer at Grand Teton Brewing Co., immediately shifting the company’s focus from traditional English-style ales to more hop-forward styles associated with the region.
Throughout his career at Grand Teton, Rob has risen to C.O.O, become the Vice President of the state brewer’s guild, and increased brewing capacity from 2,000 to 10,000 barrels a year. He also won 4 World Beer Cup medals, 13 Great American Beer Festival Medals, and 26 North American Beer Awards Medals. Rob will be joining the team as Production Manager, working closely with me and the rest of the brew team in overseeing and streamlining brewery operations.
