ABOUT THE JUDGES
Judging your entries will be our 4 judges:
Rob Nagy
Rob is the backbone of our Taproom and Retail operation. He’s the first guy you see when you walk through our doors and probably the last one you see as you stumble out.

As the Taproom & Retail Manager, Rob’s list of responsibilities is long and many; brewery tours, events, ordering and tracking product and leading the killer Taproom Team. Robs days are long, but he keeps them filled with music, IPA’s and Pale Ales. Robs talents far exceed pouring pints. As a super talented musician you can often find him playing at our Tap Room and bars in the Hamilton area.
