President & Co-Founder
Dean’s love of nature and anything fermented makes his decision to open a cidery feel right. He loves the process of taking simple apples and making an all-natural product that brings the community together. Dean moved to Colorado to work with leaders in renewable energy and prior to that was a marine biologist doing shark and ground-fish research. Dean sits on the board of the Colorado Cider Guild. While he is not great at keeping track of his shoes (some of you know...), he is known to grow a killer beard.
