Meet Brent Wojnowski, the brewmaster here at Wagner Valley Brewing Co. Brent was promoted to this position after working as the assistant brewer with the previous brewmaster, Dean Jones.

Brent first discovered his passion for craft brewing while working at Angotti’s Beers of the World in Rochester, NY, where he was exposed to beers from around the world. He began home brewing in 2007 and in 2010 moved to San Francisco, CA to work as an apprentice for Thirsty Bear Brewing Company and Social Kitchen Brewing Company.

Assistant Brewmaster

Meet Eric Byers, the assistant brewmaster here at Wagner Valley Brewing Co.

Eric started working at Wagner Valley Brewing Co in 2015. Eric was always passionate about brewing craft beer at his home in Texas, so when he followed his wife to the Finger Lakes area for her education he was able to take the plunge full time into the brewery scene. It is a very different working environment as an assistant brewer than it was being a math teacher in Texas – but Eric came to us with a passion and a great deal of knowledge. He has been an incredible asset to us here at the Brewery and he is playing a role in some of the amazing new brews we have been releasing!
