Our brewer, Tyler Smith, began his curiosity in beer as an avid consumer. Intrigued by breweries that not only push the boundaries into new styles, but also look to the past for inspiration, Tyler started brewing from home, turning his intrigue into obsession. After a decade of brewing in a garage and with 9 beers on tap, Tyler Smith decided to turn his passion into his dream, find a much bigger space, and open Cooperage Brewing Company. Focused on variety, he loves to experiment with different yeasts, hops, bacteria and barrel types to develop unique and compelling libations. He is strongly influenced by the lambic producers of Belgium and loves the idea of wild and spontaneous fermentation. He strives to produce a distinctive beer with each batch.
