Get to Know: Conan Crofoot, Brewer/Cellarman

Throughout the week we will be introducing you to the individuals helping brew Braxton’s beer. Each day, we will introduce one team member and prompt them with the same discussion topics. We hope you enjoy the behind-the-scenes look at our team! Today, we start with Conan Crofoot who just joined the team full-time as Brewer and Cellarman…

Why Braxton?

Braxton appealed to me because it is very family oriented and a well-organized brewery.

When did you fall in love with craft beer? 

It was pretty simple. I wanted to start drinking something other than the standard domestics. I just wondered, “What else is out there?”

What’s your previous experience?

I have been homebrewing for 13 years. It is how I met some of the Braxton team.

What’s your favorite style of craft beer? 


What is your favorite craft beer?

Do you have a favorite quote? 

“Life is too short to drink Domestic Beer.”

What are some of your hobbies other than brewing?

I like to hunt, do some Blacksmithing, and just some typical tinkering.

What part of Braxton are you most looking forward to? 

Bringing great beer to the region, industry, and world.

Do you have a fun fact or story you could share with everyone? 

Honestly, there are too many to list. I hope everyone stops by the brewery and we can exchange those stories over a couple of pints.
