Jay began homebrewing in 1995 and became seriously involved in
small scale brewing in 2002 when he started spending time in and
around the commercial breweries in nearby Columbus learning the nuances of pub brewing. Jay won numerous awards for his beers as a homebrewer including medals in the prestigious National Homebrew Competition in 2003 and 2005 and in 2010 reached another milestone by receiving the Bronze Medal in the Imperial Stout category at the Great American Beer Festival for Weasel Boy’s Anastasia Russian Imperial Stout. Jay remains a prominent member of the central Ohio homebrewing community and is a long time member of the American Homebrewers Association. A native of Zanesville, Jay is excited about serving the community the first locally brewed beer since the repeal of Prohibition!
