The cool use of containers are part of their new beer garden where they host food and local music.

On March 23, Ska Brewing announced their new Head Brewer, Kurt Randall. Kurt is an industry veteran and has begun overseeing of brewing and cellaring operations, along with product innovation in their new Mod Brewery. I love going to Ska and seeing their latest innovation and their Mod Brewery is the perfect place to create specialty one-off brews and sample them in an awesome tasting room.

Kurt is a huge Briess fan and Ska Brewing is a longtime, loyal Briess customer.

One of my favorite things when getting out in the field is hearing all the great testimonies of why brewers love working with Briess. I love getting one-on-one time with the brewers and seeing the projects they are working on as well as discussing how Briess ingredients can help formulate solutions or create new flavors.

Press Release from Ska Brewing:
