Our Head Brewer, Greg Tuhey, made the move to OBBC February 1 st , 2018. Prior to OBBC, Greg spent his previous three years honing his skills at the Auburn Alehouse while working under Brian Ford and Jennifer Talley. During his time at the Alehouse they took home three medals from the Great American Beer Festival, essentially the Olympics for brewers! Medals include: 2016 Bronze for English Brown Ale, 2017 Gold for Double Red Ale, and 2017 Silver for IPA during a record entry year in that category. Greg stated, “We had a really great team and I saw the opportunity to become a sponge that could absorb all of this knowledge and experience around me. I learned so much so fast! I will always be thankful for my time there.” Prior to the Auburn Alehouse, Greg worked for Crispin Cider Company in Colfax, CA for four years. He said, “When I first started there the company was relatively small but growing rapidly. I was able to get into the cellar making cider relatively quickly for a guy just starting out. Once Miller Coors took over in early 2012 the infrastructure and quality standards seemed to change overnight. I was really fortunate to be there at the time and learn the quality side from the big boys, helped me tremendously over the years.” Greg is a Nor Cal native, he lives in Colfax with his wife Marissa and their two children, little Greg and Elliana. He likes to ride snowmobiles, motocross, go fishing, and make great beer. Greg said “I love the people we have here at OBBC, my team in the back is killing it daily! I wouldn’t have it any other way. We can joke, get serious, work hard, and focus on the things that are important to us.”
