Tom Conner—Lead Brewer
After a career in advertising working with clients like Duvel, La Chouffe and Ommegang, Tom decided he’d rather make beer than ads about beer. Every day, the beer, the people who make it, and the craft culture continue to inspire him. Also, despite what you may have heard, Tom is absolutely not the progenitor of an underground international fighting ring called The Crucible. There is no such thing.
Christian Kazakoff—Head Brewer
A Navy man that got his first taste of wonderfully hand crafted beer while on liberty in Perth, Australia. Realized his true calling in professional brewing while putzing around the Oregon Brewers Festival in 1997 sampling all the different beer styles and meeting incredibly cool bearded people. Christian began cleaning kegs and bar tending at Triple Rock in Berkeley in 1995 to eventually becoming their Head Brewer in 2001. Has been the Head Brewer here at Iron Springs Pub & Brewery since July of 2008 and has made it kind of a BIG DEAL.
Mike spent 7 years brewing for McMenamin’s brewing at every single one of their breweries including running their production facility, Edgefield. From there Mike packed up his Subaru and moved out to Boulder, Colorado to work for The Mountain Sun and helped build the Southern Sun brewery.
After brewing many a snowy winter in Colorado, Mike found the love of his life and moved to Fairfax, California where they opened up Iron Springs Pub & Brewery in 2004.
