The Crew

Tom Sims, Head Honcho - Fourth-generation Oregon native. Incessant tinkerer. Trained as a welder, a pilot, a fisherman, an electrical engineer, and a school bus driver before falling in love with the wonders of fermentation.

Mike Paladino, Chief Cider Maker - After a decade overseeing brewery operations for one of the bigger beer producers in Oregon, Mike decided to switch gears and lead a true micro-brewery/cidery. With fifteen NABA and GABF medals to his credit, Mike brings a wealth of experience and passion to everything we do.

Casey Ellingson, Whippersnapper - Casey comes from McMinnville, OR where he got his start working for vineyards on some of the most fertile land in the world. He’s our jack-of-all-trades - keg cleaner, quality-control czar, blending assistant and drinker of all low-fills.
