Vice President of Brewery Operations

Ron Conklin

When did you start working at Saugatuck Brewing Company? March 6th, 2010

What brought you to SBC? I had been home brewing since first brewing on the ‘Brew On Premise’ on May 5th, 2007, when it was at the old location. I was told SBC needed a Head Brewer in 2010 and they didn’t know who to hire. I said it was something I could do, and had been bringing in samples of my home brews that everyone enjoyed. I was brewing 10 gallon all grain batches (my own recipes) at home and bought equipment to start brewing 20 gallong batches. Instead I went from 10 gallon to 10 BBL’s.

What has been your favorite moment working at SBC? I love watching the growth and all the new faces (of employees), but then it could be winning Gold at the World Beer Cup for my Bonfire Brown. That was kinda big.

What’s your favorite beer of all time? Barrel Aged Dramanatrixxx

What do you like to do when you’re not at work? Go to Alaska to Halibut fish, go to Florida and spend time with my brother (we usually find tickets to go to Mecum Car Auction), ride my motor cycle, drive my hotrod.

Who’s your favorite superhero and why? I had one when I was a little boy, but he isn’t around much anymore, Zorro. He was just cool.
