Meet the Brewers
Nick McCoy has been brewing for over a decade and travelled the world in search of great craft beer. He owns his own printing business in Dallas, called FBS. Nick is a married and has 2 young girls. Nick accounts much of his competition success on a great passion for brewing and a basic approach to the hobby that focuses on process and recipe creation. He is a member of Draft Punk homebrew club and brews regularly with Jeff Poirot.
Jeff Poirot has been home brewing for 15 years and has spent not only his vacations but any time he can spare reading about brewing, studying what others say about being a better brewer but also contemplating new batches to brew with Nick. Jeff attributes his success as a brewer to his skills as a cook which enables him to know what a beer is going to taste like before it is brewed and to his desire to try new things and “push the boundaries” of styles. Jeff is a member of Draft Punk homebrew club and brews regularly with Nicholas McCoy.
