As we build our team and company culture, it’s important those we hire reflect similar core values. After interviewing a number of really strong candidates for the position, we’re excited to announce that Russell Gibson will be joining our team as Head Brewer.
Russell has a long family history in Fenelon Falls. His Great Grandparents camped in the area since the 1930s, and his grandparents had a cottage on Sturgeon Lake since the 1950s. His father grew up spending every summer in Fenelon. Since Russell was born, he has been coming up to Fenelon every summer.
He completed a Bachelor of Science degree and the Niagara College Brewmaster program. After working a few years in one of Ontario’s largest craft breweries, he has come back to brew for Fenelon Falls Brewing Co. He is very excited to show his love of craft beer with the community he has known since his youth.
Russell is now slowly settling into his new home in Fenelon. If you’re around town, stop by to say hi to Russell!
