Patrick began his journey to master brewer where most craft beer enthusiasts do – homebrewing. With a lot of self-education and a preternatural knack for the craft, it was only a matter of time before he began to amass medals in local and national competitions. He made the decision to pursue beer full-time, taking an entry-level position with Uinta Brewing, while simultaneously pursuing certification in Brewing Science through the American Brewing Guild. In 2017, Patrick was offered the opportunity to build SaltFire Brewing from the ground up, where he wrote and developed every recipe in their initial line-up. Patrick eventually returned to Uinta, Utah’s largest craft beer producer, where he most recently held the title of Head Brewer. Patrick brings unparalleled production and quality control experience, as well as creative brewing talent to the team at Lotus Craft. Patrick is partial to lagers, but describes his first taste of New Belgium’s La Folie sour brown as nothing short of mind-blowing.
