Jake Shea
Lead Brewer

I grew up on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron in Alpena, MI. Studied Biology at NMU and worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service out West, and then returned to Marquette to continue work involving the invasive Sea Lamprey. In 2013 I took a job with a cellulosic ethanol startup plant making Biofuel in Alpena. I have always enjoyed home brewing, and really defined my skills and recipes in the 9 years of enjoying that hobby. I took the wealth of knowledge from both the ethanol plant and home brewing and couldn’t be happier being back in Marquette brewing. Work is only work until you love your job.
