Born and raised in Littleton, Colorado, Zac Rissmiller began his brewing career after working as an engineer at Lockheed Martin. Zac has helped to launch and grow figurehead Colorado breweries, spent countless hours obsessing over recipe development, and brewing batch after batch after batch after that perfecting process and technique.
Zac is proud to call Colorado 澳门国际娱乐网址网站_真人线上国际_官home, and thrilled to share his work with the Maryland beer community.
Zac got his start in the beer industry at Dry Dock Brewing Company's sister company and adjacent 澳门国际娱乐网址网站_真人线上国际_官homebrew shop, The Brew Hut. He worked as an intern, assistant, and then head brewer at Elk Mountain Brewing for three years helping to win four Colorado State Fair medals, a silver medal at 2015 GABF® for South German Hefeweizen, and a silver medal at the Best of American Craft Beer Awards in 2015, also for Hefeweizen.
Can you tell Zac likes Hefeweizen?
Zac went on to co-found Resolute Brewing before moving on to Rockyard Brewing Company as Manager of Brewery Operations. In 2018, Rockyard quadrupled its sales and won gold at the 2018 World Beer Cup. Rockyard’s German-style Pilsner Primadonna is one of Zac’s favorite beers on the planet.
