Mark - Pour Advisor AKA "The Beer Man" - When you come for a sampling in our Tasting Room you might be lucky enough to find Mark behind the bar.

Mark enjoys skiing and hiking, infact he has hiked in Germany, Austria, Scotland, & Ireland! Although Mark loves all kinds of craft beer, his favorite CB Craft Brewers' beer is Caged Alpha Monkey IPA.
