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 works as a Senior Engineer where he designs 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 new owners of a house that is just steps away from the brewery. At least we know who is on call when one of us inevitably 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 the ageless wonder, Gary the goldfish.
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.
Jake can quote any line from any movie ... ever. After studying film at Penn State University, Jake moved to Los Angeles following graduation where he developed a love of the restaurant industry while working at Yardbird. Deep down, Jake always knew that he was a Pittsburgh boy, so he returned home, settling into a new neighborhood in Dormont. Jake works as a Manager at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market. When he isn't working, you can find Jake on the disc golf course or elbows deep in something delicious in the kitchen.
By day, Cody works as the Chief Community Engagement Officer at Animal Friends. He lives in Brookline with his fiancé Alexa and their three dogs, Archie, Freckles and Ollie. 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 is perfectly content settling for working with animals and making beer. Life could definitely be worse.
