WHO WE ARE.
AC spent four years earning a degree in molecular biology and biochemistry from Middlebury College, before heading off to get a brewing degree from the Siebel Institute in the hope that people (and yeast) will take him somewhat seriously. He's a triple threat - not only is AC a pro with lab equipment, he also excels in design and is gifted with a sledgehammer. With these talents in mind, AC has spearheaded the graphic and interior design of Lamplighter and facilitated the start of demo and renovation at 284 Broadway. He will, of course, also be responsible for churning out some tasty brews and constantly reminding us that science plays an important role in brewing beer.
Cayla keeps the gears turning and keeps the boys in check. Cayla spent her formative years earning a degree in math, another in brewing, and another in culinary arts. She’s spent of a lot of time working as a chef, bartendress, server, and manager in beer-oriented establishments across New England, and will make our taproom the wonderful, welcoming place we know it will be. She’s also taken charge of our website, social media, and Quickbooks, and has therefore made herself the most important one in the company. Oh, and she's a damn good brewer. If you have a problem, call Cayla.
Tyler knows how to make some kickass beer. He earned his chops by brewing at Wormtown, Mystic, and Cape Cod over the past five years, he’s attended courses at the American Brewer’s Guild, and he's a barrel-aging and Brett wizard. He's also an accomplished photographer, gardener, and bread baker, and grows an unbelievable neck beard. Tyler will work his magic on the shiny brewery equipment day in and day out in order to kick out some truly fantastic beer. And, if you want to drive him crazy, make a bunch of terrible hop puns. Puns are Tyler's kryptonite.

The Wizards Behind the Curtain
It's all fun and games when writing bios about ourselves, but there's some seriousness to be had here too. This has been a long journey and a more arduous one than we ever anticipated, and we have not done this on our own. We are incredibly grateful for the help and support from everyone in our lives, and we couldn't have done it without the assistance of just about every single person we know. Thank you all for supporting our dreams.
