Sarah Baldwin, Web Designer
Sarah’s love of craft beer started in college when she learned to homebrew and started a local craft beer enthusiast club. Since then, her love of beer has become the subject matter for tattoos and she lovingly named her black rescue cat Dunkel. When not obsessing over web design, she can be found practicing yoga, cooking and enjoying IPAs atop the mountains of north Idaho.

Cindy feels right at home in the community of craft brewers. Being surrounded by passionate, creative breweries is an amazing and inspiring work environment. At beer:30 you’ll find her digging through the beer fridge for a good brown ale.
Luke Trautwein, Creative Director
Can one man stare at delicious beer for hours every day and not lose his sanity? Luke is on a mission to find that answer. If not making beer look fabulous (tough, right?), you’ll find him crankin’ around on his bike or sippin’ on something hoppy. Follow him on Instagram.
Nate Zander, Sr. Web Developer
Already a certified computer nerd, Nate is working on his beer geek credentials as a student of the Certified Cicerone® program.

Lisa’s love of learning led her to discover computer programming in 2015. She is happy to be using her coding skills to build beautiful websites and promote craft beer. As a mom of three, she has no free time, but hopes one day to get back to her love of horror movies and punk concerts. Her kids do allow her to indulge her Disney obsession on the daily.
Kate Sanford, Production Designer
Kate’s love for branding often translated into far too much time hanging in the craft aisle. These days she’s a rather disloyal drinker, exploring all the variety craft has to offer. As a mom in the throes of toddlerhood, hobbies and adventures aren’t what they used to be, but Kate loves to spend whatever time she can in the mountains snowboarding, hiking, and just taking in the views.
