One of the inevitabilities of running a business is that some of the people you hire will leave. You can choose to freak out about it, or accept it as part of the natural life of a business. Personally, I’m just thankful for the contributions people make when they’re here and hopeful that we’ve been a good home for them.

That is why it is without a hint of animosity that I’m announcing our first departure: Alex Tweet. Alex has spent the last year working incredibly hard to help get Modern Times up and running. He’s come in at 4am on countless occasions to get double brew days started (including yesterday and today). He’s completed a veritable potpourri of dirty, demanding minor construction tasks far outside of the job title “Brewer.” He’s run our cask program, and in doing so, has come up with several marvelous concoctions that are destined to be scaled-up. And he’s taken the lead on our pilot program, which he’s faithfully attended to whenever there’s downtime in the brewhouse.

In short, Alex has contributed a great deal towards making Modern Times what it has become, and I’m deeply thankful for his time here.

And best of all, he’s leaving in a way that makes me excited for his future. Next month, Alex will be moving to the Bay Area to take the position of Head Brewer with a new brewery he’ll be starting with Barry Braden, a friend of Modern Times and certifiably great guy (and former owner of Local Habit).

The timing is auspicious. I’ll take this opportunity to announce the hiring of Andrew Schwartz, current Brewer & Lab Guru at the highly regarded Ithaca Beer Company, makers of some legendarily delicious IPAs and sour beers. Andrew will be a Brewer for us and he is eminently qualified for the task: he has a Masters in microbiology to go along with two and a half years of quality brewhouse experience. He also has a deep knowledge of beer & brewing techniques, and relentless desire to learn more.

Andrew has a strong interest in the microbiological side of beer, and we expect him to make significant contributions to both our quality control efforts and our fledgling funk/sour program. His tastes lean toward dry, hoppy IPAs and funky saisons, and he has a specific passion for barrel-aging. All in all, we’re incredibly excited to be bringing him on.

Additionally, I’m proud to say that we’ve been rapidly promoting from within to support our continued growth. Tim Kamolz started with us as a part-time canning line dude, but we recently made him a full-time Cellar Assistant. Tim is a super sharp guy who has made a very strong impression on everyone working here, and we expect him to have a bright future with us. 

We're also stoked about some new canning line hires, a bunch of new hires/promotions for the forthcoming North Park Flavordome, and a COO hire that I'll have more to say about in a few weeks. All in all, we've managed to attract a bunch of really great folks who I'm extremely proud to see moving up, and we've got a fresh crop of promising warm bodies that I'm sure you'll be hearing more from in the future.

So, lots of growth and a few changes happening. We’re morphing from a tiny cell of extremely harried individuals into a 20+ strong group of somewhat less harried individuals. The pace of our growth continues to boggle my mind, and we’ll undoubtedly be bringing on more rad people in the not too distant future. Exciting stuff ahead.
