What is your current position?

I am Brewmaster at Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York.

What are you expecting from this year’s Quebec’s Microbreweries Convention? 

I am looking forward to giving a good presentation as well as to learn from other presentations and brewers. I am also expecting  to see friends and to visit Quebec City!


Can you give us a preview of the “Bottle refermentation” talk you will be giving on November 21st? 

The presentation will give an overview of the refermentation process and then go into practical considerations. On the other hand, we will also look at how, at Ommegang, we currently referment our beers and possible alternative processes we could use in the future.

Any advice for new-coming microbrewers in the industry? 

I strongly recommend new-coming microbrewers to gain as much knowledge and experience as possible: attend brewing school, learn as much as you can by reading brewing textbooks and technical journals and get a job in a working brewery.

Conference: Bottle refermentation on November 21st, 3:00pm to 4:00pm
