Braxton Labs Beer Science Fair: Firkin Profile: Conan Crofoot

Beer Science Fair is an event to celebrate creativity, innovation, and individualism within the craft brewing industry. 9 of our brewers have put their noses to the grindstone to come up with firkins for testing and judging by YOU at Beer Science Fair on September 29th at Braxton Labs.

We’re very excited about the beers that our brewers have been working on, and we’re looking forward to sharing them with you! This blog post profiles Conan Crofoot. Conan was the first full time hire here at Braxton. A prolific home brewer for several years, his expertise has helped us to produce quite a few incredible beers, which makes us excited to see what he’s brewing for Beer Science Fair!
