TimTim Patty

The godfather of the Powerhouse, an innovator, a legend (at least in our view) of the northwest craft beer movement, these are just of the few things we could say about Tim Patty our brewmaster. Tim’s been brewing beer longer than most craft brewers have even been able to drink. Despite this he’s a humble fellow who loves to talk beer, wine, whiskey, and politics. Drop us an email and we’ll sign you up for his mailing list.

Tristan Canty may look intimidating (we think he may actually live at a gym) but don’t mistake him for anything other than a worldly, thoughtful brewer dedicated to producing the finest ales and lagers in the Northwest.
