Paul has been obsessed with brewing craft beer since 1978. And for over 30 years now, big Rock has benefited form his divine madness.
Like any Brewmaster worth his malt, Paul is charged with providing consistent magnificence in our beers. Since Big Rock is a craft brewery, a big part of that entails ensuring that everything that goes in to our beers is natural, of the highest quality, and brewed to the exacting standards genuine craft beer demands.
Jody will tell you, being a Brewmaster really isn’t a job. It’s a calling. A calling that has led him around the world to learn from the best.
While he got his first taste for craft beer working with us at our Calgary brewery, he was bitten by the BC bug later in life, living in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant district for 5 years (coincidentally the site of our 2nd brewery built in 2015). Always regarding it has his “home”, Jody was determined to return one day. Thanks to his 20 years of working in every aspect of brewing, his unreasonably stubborn insistence on only every using fresh, local ingredients, and his uncompromising attitude toward anything to do with beer, that “one day” has arrived
Connor came to Big Rock over 10 years ago, and there was no denying he made an impression. The talented 24-year old football player had suffered a career ending injury in the midst of his CFL draft year. With a future in football no longer an option, he found himself in search of his next great passion. Adventures through Europe introduced him to the fascinating and vast world of beer.
And he was hooked.
