Jerod is our head brewer, born and raised in northeastern Indiana. He is truly the heart and soul of Chapman's beer, developing and refining our recipes to their current state of excellence.
Jerod recognizes the art and the science of brewing, and he started his career as a cellarman for Granite City Brewery. He grew to manage one of the chain's most popular locations.
Married to a gifted graphic artist, Jerod and his wife are expecting their first child outside of their black lab, Lucy, who is the unofficial Chapman's mascot.
Fundamentally a creative artist, Jerod also is a master woodworker. He created the flite paddles and the custom wood ceiling in the taproom.
