Graham had his career all figured out — he was going to be a Chemical Engineer. He just never thought those ‘chemicals’ would involve hops, barley and malt. Now, he’s head brewer at Parallel 49 Brewing Company, managing recipe development, brewing operations, quality control, and engineering projects.
A brewing company approached Graham while he was working at a wastewater facility. After a month of decision making, he made the switch. He appreciated the similarities. where you take dirty water, ferment out the impurities, and release it to the ocean. His engineering skills are very active in the brewery.
The brew-master works with a team that brews around the clock.Graham is ordering ingredients, coordinating production schedules, and designs recipes. His work is a mix of science and creativity and he feels lucky to have his hobby intersect with a career path that is related to engineering.
