MEET THE VERGE BREWING TEAM

Our core leadership is made up of long-time Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) trained homebrewers with a strong background in building craft beer recipes from scratch. We've won over 80 competition awards over the years, but more importantly, our brews have become favorites of family and friends.
