|Doug Hurst, Head Brewer -
He was once given the choice of writing a term paper or brewing a batch of beer for a botany professor. I’m sure you can see where this is going.
Doug Hurst is an accomplished brewer with 20 years of experience. Formally, Doug earned a Diploma in Brewing Technology from the world renowned Siebel Institute of Technology/World Brewing Academy in Chicago and Munich. But it was his years of informal experience as a homebrewer that made him the unofficial, knowledgeable beer-geek in his classes. Doug is a passionate beer aficionado with a solid understanding of the brewing process as well as the craft beer market. He has been researching, analyzing and studying the brewing industry for more than ten years and dreaming about Metropolitan Brewing for even longer.
