Russell Everett, Brewmaster/Co-Owner, was raised on the island and is a graduate of Bainbridge High, the University of Washington, and the University of Miami. Like many brewers, he started as an avid homebrewer and went pro.
Russell says a great beer is about so many things. But suffice it to say, he likes a beer that’s done well: free of faults, well balanced, served right, and just what you’re looking for.
And while his brewing philosophy is to always make it well, he’s not afraid to experiment. Case in point – the brewery’s Sandbox Series experimental beers. As an award-winning Brewmaster, he’s always enjoyed using new ingredients, trying out new brewing methods, and using new flavors.
Russell is always perfecting the classic year-round and seasonal beer styles that the brewery produces. At the same time, the brewery also makes some interesting one-offs, barrel-aged beers, and sours. So keep an eye on what’s up next!
