Ian Price

Head Brewer

Photo of Head Brewer, Ian PriceIan grew up in nearby Lansing, New York, and actually got his first foray into fermentation in the wine industry, working at Standing Stone Vineyards. From there, his love of a cold beer after a hard day’s work led him to Burlington, Vermont — or as he calls it: The Napa Valley of Craft Beer.
Ian spent more than a decade in Burlington, most recently brewing numerous double IPAs at the popular Foam Brewers. He’s excited to bring that knowledge closer to home, where he can now enjoy a Wegmans sub while diving into our deep, lager-rich history. He echoes the sentiment that founder Bill Wagner created us on — “It takes a lot of beer to make great wine.” — and Ian is excited to play a role in crafting nuanced and delicious brews.
