Dan Schmelzer

Head Brewer, Seattle

Please list your name, position, month/year you started at Lagunitas & how you ended up here! Dan Schmelzer, Head (and only!) Brewer – Seattle 3.25 years I got tipped off about the Seattle taproom opening by my ol’ pal Chef Bob who opened the Chicago taproom, I applied to the initial open interview call and as we weren’t ready to hire a brewer at the time I was the original sound engineer for the bands playing the taproom. Once ready to hire a brewer I was first on the list, and began brewing here after a phone interview with Jeremy. (Fun fact: Chef Bob used to be Tony Magee’s pot hookup when he flew into Chicago, and I was Chef Bob’s source!).
