After attending culinary school, Will worked within the hospitality and restaurant business for several years. A casual interest-turned-obsession in home-brewing would eventually lead him to the American Brewer's Guild for continued education. Upon graduation Will began his professional brewing career with Fair Winds Brewing Company in Northern Virginia. In summer 2018, Will and his wife decided to relocate to Northwest Arkansas where he's found a home with Natural State Beer Company. Will brings his passion for good beer and a love of lagers to the team.
