San Diego-based brewery Bay City Brewing Thursday announced the hiring of new head brewer Austin Pinder.
Pinder is joining Bay City from Karl Strauss Brewing and has more than a decade of professional brewing experience including his most recent role as Senior Brewer at Karl Strauss. He plans to add more sour beers to Bay City’s brewery’s lineup, expand its barrel-aging program and implement a quality assurance program.
“This is a transformative time for Bay City Brewing,” said owner Greg Anderson. “Austin’s brewing knowledge will build on our momentum by elevating our core beers and cultivating our growing presence in the community.”
Pinder entered the industry at Firehouse Brewing Co., working there until the company shuttered in 2011. Pinder then moved to Karl Strauss, rising through the brewery’s ranks.
“Our entire team impacts Bay City’s customer experience — from sourcing high-quality ingredients to our service at the bar,” Pinder said. “I’m committed to ensuring that experience includes the best quality beer possible, every single time.”
