BOULDER, CO – The anticipation is over, as Owner Mike Lawinski has officially announced that Jeff Griffith will be the Head Brewer for Fate Brewing Company. Formerly Head Brewer for Golden City Brewery, Jeff brings an ideal blend of innovation and expertise to the craft beer world.
Mike Lawinski explains, “Jeff is an incredible asset to Fate, and having him in the picture helped to create the whole vision of such a dynamic concept. I have had experience working with Jeff for a couple of years, and identified him as someone special from the very beginning. The innovative product that Jeff was producing out of such a small infrastructure was nothing short of amazing. We are thrilled to introduce his five core beers this fall, and numerous special releases in the near future. He is an incredible technical brewer and brings diversity, creativity and a passion for his craft. Under his brewing leadership, I am confident that Fate Brewing Company will become a common household name in Boulder and beyond.”
Jeff joined Golden City Brewery in February of 2005, and was the driving force behind Evolution IPA, Stand Up Double IPA, Imperial Stout, Javapeño Imperial Stout and more. Jeff specializes in recipe development and has spent the past eight years producing award-winning craft brews, earning over 30 medals in multiple categories from competitions such as the North American Beer Awards. Jeff obtained his General Certificate of Brewing from London’s Institute of Brewing & Distilling, and has attended several educational forums including the MBAA Malting & Brewing Science course, Hop Union’s Hop School and Rocky Mountain Microbrewer’s Symposiums. When asked what Fate had in store for him, Jeff responded, “This is a great opportunity to take my creativity to the next level. In addition to crafting core favorites, I plan to explore a wide range of original microbrews featuring experimental ingredients, historical styles and barrel aging.”
