Not unlike many brewmasters, John’s background is a little out of the ordinary. After graduating from DeVry Institute of Technology in 1975, he went to work for Hughes Aircraft in El Segundo, California. As a Senior Electronic Technician from 1975 to 1986, he worked on the radar system for the F-14 Tomcat. Shortly after leaving Hughes, he wised up and attended the Siebel Institute of Technology in Phoenix, AZ, where he graduated from their 50th course in Brewing Technology. He then worked as Assistant Brewmaster at the Alaskan Brewery in Juneau until 1989. John is widely respected in the microbrewing industry, winning countless awards, including 1988 Homebrewer of the Year and, in 1997, the first ever Russell Scherher Award which recognizes innovation in craft brewing.
Not only is Rogue’s Brewmaster a several-time award winner, their beers have won 12 medals at the Great American Beer Festival and over 170 other awards in other brewing competitions all over the world. You could say…Rogue makes good beer! Actually, you could say, they make damn good beer. The brewery itself has been awarded the Northwest Brewery of the Year two years in a row. With this many awards, you might think that they must only make a few different beer styles and focus on making them really well. Wrong! They currently have an impressive 23 beers in production. Too bad we can’t send them all to you!
