Lee is always thinking of the next new and interesting recipe. His love of beer is rivaled only by an affinity for creating and a deep passion for sports. A proud Penn State alum, Lee has worked as a Senior Engineer where he designed pressure vessel components for the steel and energy industries. He also covers professional sports as a writer for several online publications. He and his two dogs Eris and Linc are the proud owners of a home that is just steps from the brewery. At least we know who is on call when someone gets locked out!
Pat has the best beard of the group, but the rest of them would quickly remind you that he is also the oldest. A graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Electrical Engineering, Pat works as a Senior Controls Engineer, specializing in automation programming and product development. Pat grew up just east of Pittsburgh and was a proud member of the Circleville Volunteer Fire Department before moving to Erie for work and school. He and his wife Patty now live in Dormont with their dog Piper and daughter Eleanor.
The better half of the McKinley pair, Patty keeps the business side of the brewery (and the rest of the crew) in check. Patty holds degrees in Project and Supply Chain Management and Management Information Systems from Penn State University and has experience in small business management from her days as an assistant office manager at her family's veterinary hospital. In addition to working as a Transportation Analyst at Carmeuse Americas, Patty is an animal lover and is excited to share her entrepreneurial spirit and love of beer with the Dormont Community.
During the day, Cody works as the Chief Community Engagement Officer at Animal Friends. He lives in Brookline with his wife Alexa and their three dogs, Archie, Freckles and Ollie and are expecting their first child -- a daughter -- near the end of summer 2022. Cody graduated from Susquehanna University with a degree in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations. When he was young, Cody had dreams of one day becoming a professional stunt double, but he couldn't be happier combining his passions of working with animals and making beer. Life could definitely be worse.
