Susan and Kevin go back many years both working together and enjoying many, many beers. After a lot of "what ifs" and "wouldn't it be cool's..." they decided to set out to create their own brand, Compass Brewing PDX.
Kevin is a NOLA transplant, but has called the Pacific Northwest home since 1996. He brings a passion for cooking and creating to the brewery. Susan is a long term West Coaster with roots in the Bay area. The Hammer brings it down to hone in on the strategy and direction, and keeps the ship pointing North.
Both spend an inordinate amount of time in the brewhouse and on the keg washer!
Rounding out the team are Julie and Lindsay, partner extraordinaires, creative consultants and beer jockeys, but most importantly deal with the chaos the other two create.
The Compass Mission:
make consistently great beer accessible to our local community in an inclusive and positive environment
