Jan has worked in and around breweries since 1997, starting in the kitchen at a couple of notable, local brewpubs. Luckily for Pike Brewing Company she was drawn to the brewery side of the house. Jan started as a keg washer and brewer at the now defunct Pacific Rim Brewing and worked on the bottling line at Hale’s Ales. She started on Pike Brewing’s bottling line in 2008 and was promoted to full time Brewer in 2011.
Jan was drawn to Pike Brewing in part because of her love of Pike IPA, which has always been one of her favorite beers. She likes that brewing is an active job with a lot of balance between moving and thinking and appreciates working for a company that treats her well. All of us at Pike Brewing are happy to have such a dedicated and committed brewer on our team.
