Wesley Deal, Co-Founder / Brewmaster
Wes answered the siren song of the brewing goddesses and found himself enrolled in the four year Brewing Program at UC Davis. Toward the last couple semesters of his studies, Wes began conceptualizing his own custom pro-brewing system and recipes for Barrel Brothers. In June of 2015 he graduated from their prestigious program with a BS in Brewing Sciences, ready to get to work building his dream brewery.
Daniel Weber, Co-Founder
Daniel was already well into a career in the wine industry when the allure of grain won out over grapes. Daniel’s experience in the DTC world of boutique wine provided a foundation of hospitality, sales and marketing, operations, and sparked a passion for involvement in all facets of a small business. He has drawn on his varied experience to spearhead the sales, marketing, and brand development for Barrel Brothers Brewing Company.
Tom Sather, Co-Founder
Tom is a physical therapist in Sonoma County and a proud member of the gang of early “outlaws” who were home brewing way back when it was still illegal in the U.S. His first days of “dorm” brewing were squeezed in between studying while in a Doctorate Program at Stanford University, after four years as a scholar athlete at the University of Arizona.
