For the love of beer

We moved to Carson City in 1992 and have always shared a close bond.

The bond grew in 2008, when we found a shared passion for home brewing. The hobby quickly grew into a dream of having a brewery of our own. We began brewing professionally at High Sierra Brewing Co., during which we won a gold medal for our Honey Ale at the Great American Beer Festival in 2013.

 

Brewmaster Jeff Young

In 2001 Jeff started a career drilling domestic water wells for Blain Well Drilling. Like many, when the recession hit it led to him being laid off in 2010.

Determined to make the negative a positive, he began volunteering at High Sierra Brewing Co. to learn more about the art of brewing. Within a month he was offered a job as an assistant brewer. Two years later he took over as Brew Master. He held this position until April of 2014, when High Sierra stopped operations in Carson City.

Brewmaster Paul Young

Paul graduated from Carson High School in 2005.

His senior project led him to nonprofit work and a role as mentor for the Boys and Girls Club-Mentor Center. While getting his business management degree from UNR, he continued his work with the Boys and Girls Club as a program coordinator. 

After college Paul worked as an assistant brewer for his brother at High Sierra. Within nine months he acquired the role as Brewery Production Manager. That position was held until April of 2014, when High Sierra Stopped operations in Carson City.
