About this Project: Yay Beer!

My coworker and friend runs a startup home-brewery called West East Brewing Company. He invited me back in August to come photograph his brewing process. I’ve never been one to decline the offer for a beer with good company and I gladly took him up on the offer (Again: Yay, Beer!)

The Man Behind the Beer

Tom invited me to join him and his friends on a Saturday afternoon while he brewed beer on his back patio. He is jovial and laid back, but definitely has a visible passion for his hobbies such as brewing. Tom definitely does not seem like a “half-in” kind of guy: he’s all-in and definitely all-in with brewing. His setup had the flavor of grassroots brewing, but the quality of the beer we tried was great. If it had been professionally labeled, I would have thought it was interchangeable in quality with anything I would get on draft at Great Lake Brewery.

Ultimately, I’m certainly humbled that the photos I captured of the process have made their way to his website: West East Brewing Company. I can’t wait to try more beer from Tom, and I wish him the best of luck making it in the world of brewing.
