Before starting Brewmation, Kevin worked for 24 years in various manufacturing management, and controls positions for Georgia Pacific, Lafarge, and Zumbach Electronics. In 2003 his home brewing hobby collided with his background and passion for automation, and Brewmation was born. Brewmation, now has well over 1,000 installations in various breweries and distilleries in North and South America, as well as several overseas installations.
As employee number 2 at Brewmation, Michael has been at the forefront of our brewery sales process for the better part of a decade. His time in the restaurant industry provides a unique perspective to brewpub operations, along with a wealth of knowledge to the art and science of custom brewhouse builds. With over 500 brewery installations and countless homebrews to his credit, Michael is continually expanding upon his expertise in brewery design and his mastery of the brewing process, equipment, and controls, making him an invaluable partner for any brewery build.
Building on a career in high-tech sales and seeking to turn his love of beer and brewing into a full-time job, Jabien joined the Brewmation team to provide his expertise in brewing and now leads our Distilling Systems group. He has designed custom brew houses and craft distillery systems for hundreds of installations, and his passion for and outspoken knowledge of sour beer has earned him multiple appearances on The Sour Hour podcast.
