Mike’s spent his entire career in the bev biz. He started in the craft world with Rhino Chasers out of Huntington Beach during college. He then led teams for the largest winery and the two largest liquor companies in the world (in both New England and California). His last corporate stint was running his on-premise team in the Pacific Northwest for the largest US premium adult beverage distributor. He’s proud to now be out of the rat race applying his experience to “his own craft”. Mike’s happy to call Cape Cod home and loves the fact he’s only minutes from the ocean at any given time.
John grew up on Cape Cod and recently moved back to the sandbar from Kansas. His passion for brewing is second to none, in his “spare time” he works as a bankruptcy and litigation attorney for his family’s firm in Orleans. He has spent the last decade actively brewing and tweaking his recipes (usually with a KU game an earshot away). It’s great to hear our customers say over and over to Captain Kanagaroo “you nailed it my man”.
Nick grew up in Chatham and comes to Hog Island with a Chemistry degree from UMass Amherst and a passion for beer. This passion led Nick to enter in our home brew contest and win with an outstanding Pale Ale. A later visit to the brewery turned into a job offer. We knew Nick would thrive as an assistant brewer, but have been blown away with his leadership at the helm of our technical sales division. When not at the brewery, Nick enjoys long walks on the beach, cooking and throwing the javelin.
