Grant McFarren | Head Brewer
Grant got his start at Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, NC. There he learned the in's & out's of making consistently great beer. While in Asheville, Grant obtained a degree with highest honors in Brewing, Distillation, & Fermentation from the Craft Beverage Institute of the Southeast at Asheville-Buncombe Technical College. He is particularly proud of his capstone project, a grain-to-glass gin made with locally harvested spruce tips. It was damned delicious. Fortunately, life conspired to bring Grant back West and he found a new home brewing at Butcherknife in the fall of 2017.
Grant loves dry, aromatic IPAs, barrel-aged mixed culture ales and almost every other well-made beer. When not at Butcherknife, you can find Grant in the backcountry running, skiing or hiking with his fiance Katie and their radical dog Bowie.
