Writing things down with pencil and paper. Passing around a single binder with recipes and brew sheets. Managing your inventory using Excel. Scanning things and e-mailing them between breweries. Sounds crazy, right? We think it is, yet most breweries are still using this process. We knew there had to be a better way.
Steve Mashington has been involved in the brewing, sale, and development of new beer his entire career. Steve started his career at Stewart's Brewpub in rural Delaware while completing his degree at the University of Delaware (B.S., Consumer Economics – 2001). Since then, he has taken on roles of increasing responsibility leading to his most recent position as General Manager for River City Cannery, whom provide canning services for over 50 clients in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Prior to River City, Steve was Director of Production at Rogue Ales and Spirits in Newport, OR. Rogue is an internationally acclaimed brewery with production exceeding 120,000 barrels per year and distributed in all 50 states and 40+ countries. During his tenure at Rogue, Steve oversaw the installation and commissioning of multiple tanks and a high speed bottling line that tripled output.
Before Steve accepted the position at Rogue, he was Operations Manager and Director of Sales and Marketing at Yards Brewing Company. One of Steve's first moves at Yards was to hire an enterprising young homebrewer named Mitch Albach, who had dreams of making beer. Together they assisted in building Yards brewery in Philadelphia and growing the brand from 5000 barrels a year to its current production of 40,000 barrels.
