Lewis McCallister: Brewer

Lewis joined our brewing team in the spring of 2014. Living in 3 of the 5 largest cities in the United States before the age of 12, his family finally settled down in Parkersburg, West Virginia, where Lewis attended high school at Parkersburg High School. Lewis is a 2012 graduate of Appalachian State University with a B.S. in International and Comparative Politics.

While his degree may be in Political Science his passion is in BEER. Since he was 21 (legal drinking age of course), Lewis has been trying as many beers as possible and visiting as many breweries as possible. From Belgians to West Coast IPA’s to sours he really enjoys the entire spectrum of beer from around the world. He has been an avid home brewer for over three years and a beer coinsurer for over 10 years. Lewis brings knowledge in brewing, marketing, quality control and social media to our team here at Blind Squirrel.

If he isn’t home brewing on his days off you may find Lewis trekking along his favorite hiking trails in the summer or flying down his favorite ski trails in the winter. Somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades, Lewis is also a bluegrass musician (guitar, mandolin) and loves seeing live music whenever he has the time.
