Dry Dock Brewing Announces Two New Head Brewers
(AURORA, CO) — Dry Dock Brewing Company is pleased to announce new head brewers at each of its locations. Tim Evon is now at the helm of South Dock, Dry Dock’s original location on East Hampden Avenue, and Alan Simons is running the ship at North Dock, Dry Dock’s production brewhouse and facility on I-70 and Tower Road.
Tim Evon started homebrewing in Utah, where he worked at The Beer Nut homebrew supply shop in Sal t Lake City before joining the brewing team at Bohemian Brewery. He received the Master Brewer Certification from the World Brewing Academy through Siebel Institute of Technology, and finally landed in Colorado as a brewer at Dry Dock in 2012. He took over South Dock’s brewing operations in March 2015.
Alan Simons also began his brewing career as a homebrewer and proudly purchased his supplies from The Brew Hut. He moved to Summit County in 2008 and started brewing professionally at Backcountry Brewery in Frisco. He became Backcountry’s head brewer eight months later, and worked there for seven years. During that time, Backcountry Brewery won a silver Great American Beer Festival® medal for its May Bock and another silver GABF® medal for its Saison du Summer (now called Imperial Saison).
Dry Dock Brewing Company was the first brewery in Aurora, Colorado that opened next door to its sister business, The Brew Hut, at 15120 E. Hampden Avenue in 2005. Dry Dock is now one of Colorado’s top producing breweries made possible by its second production facility North Dock, the closest Colorado craft brewery to the airport. Dry Dock will celebrate its 10th anniversary in October.
