The Fun Never Stops
When your passion is your job, life is good
Want to know what’s crazy? If we hadn't met over beers in a tasting room in San Francisco, we would still be working in highrises and struggling against the current of chaotic city life. Instead, we crafted a crazy brewery scheme and followed our hearts to Colorado where our lives are filled with passionate pursuits: brewing the finest craft beer, skiing Vail’s infinite Back Bowls, fishing clear mountain streams, hiking with our dogs…basically loving life in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Crazy Mountain Brewery is the Vail Valley’s first production brewery, but really it’s a declaration of freedom. We say crazy is, as crazy does, so drink up and live the life you want!

Kevin was born and raised outside of Parker, Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University. He spent time in the financial industry in Europe and in California, but left to pursue his dream of opening his own brewery when some of his homebrew found its way in front of an employee of Anchor Brewing Company and a job opportunity opened the door for him to the brewing industry. After working in the brewing industry in several breweries in California, he returned to Colorado to open his own brewery in January 2010. Growing up in Colorado, Kevin was immersed in a craft beer culture and his brewing style has been heavily influenced from his time in Europe, as well as the West Coast. While not brewing or drinking beer, Kevin loves all things outdoors...skiing, flyfishing, hiking, and camping.
Marisa got into craft beer when she first met Kevin at the Anchor Brewing Company tasting room in San Francisco in 2007. Prior to her life in beer, Marisa graduated from the University of Southern California and pursued a career in marketing and advertising at a variety of agencies across California. While she used to watch HBO shows and movies for a living, she now enjoys drinking high-end beer for a living. Marisa lives in Edwards with her husband, Kevin, her dog Doobie and spends her free time trying to remember what wine tastes like, breaking into local resort pools, quick trips to Denver for city living and eating haute cuisine at the superb local restaurants in Vail.
Zach was born in Denver, Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University with a BA in Speech Communication. Immediately following graduation, he moved to Chicago for what was supposed to be a three month internship at a record label. Falling in love with the city and getting a job at a bar, he stayed for eight years, the last four working for a beer distributor. Colorado and his undying love of the Denver Broncos were calling him home and he moved back in the summer of 2011 to work for Paulaner USA, as their Mountain Region Manager selling their imports. The love of the craft beer he drank and sold in Chicago was too much, and he joins the Crazy Mountain Team with a vast background on both the distributor and supplier side. He lives in Denver with his 4 year old yellow lab, Karl "Sir Elway" Mecklenburg.
Kate grew up just outside of Boulder, Colorado. After heading to the flatlands for college (Kansas - Rock Chalk), she found her way back to 300 days of Colorado sunshine. Following brief stints in the mortgage and hospitality industries, Kate decided to leave these "real jobs" behind and pursue her passion - craft beer. She joins the Crazy Mountain team after working for the Brewers' Association/Great American Beer Festival and is eager to continue to learn about all things beer. Her free time is devoted to enjoying the great outdoors with her dog Ranger, filling out her brackets for March Madness and visiting breweries near and far.
Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Maria graduated from Bethel University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and started her career towards becoming a Sports Photographer and Journalist. Having grown up traveling the world, living in Hawaii for her childhood, and taking countless road trips across the country, it was only a matter of time before she stumbled into the beautiful mountains of Colorado. The competitiveness of Sports Journalism grew too cut-throat for Maria, so she took a job as a server at a remote ranch near Sedalia, Colorado called Lost Valley Ranch. There she grew to love everything Colorado offered, including craft beer at the local watering holes. After three years at the ranch, Maria followed her now-fiancé to Edwards, Colorado, where she had her first taste of Crazy Mountain beer at their grand opening in September 2010. You can find Maria skiing on weekends in the winter, either downhill or nordic, hiking and camping in the summer, reading a book at home, or toting her camera around everywhere.
Born in Colorado Springs, Chris moved to St. Louis, MO at an early age. Always hearing stories about Colorado from his father and his developing love for the outdoors, Chris always knew he would live in Colorado again. In 2005, Chris moved to Fort Collins where his love for craft beer began. Spending many a day in the tasting rooms of local craft breweries, he got a taste of what great hand-crafted beer was like. Chris started his own construction company and also worked in real estate/property management before his stint at Odell Brewing Company. Realizing how much he enjoyed Vail Valley in all seasons, he soon decided this is where he wanted to live. Chris combined his love of craft beer and his skills in the construction field to start his dream job here at Crazy Mountain Brewing Company. In his free time, he loves to snowboard and snowshoe in the winter and fish and hike in the summer.

After graduating from Texas A&M with a B.S. in Geography, he moved to Leadville, CO to immerse himself in the expansive views and fresh air of the Rockies.

While living on the Front Range, he spent quality time as a Beer Buyer for a major liquor store, prepping him for the excitement of working for a craft brewery in once he returned to the his high altitude home.

Originally from Ohio, Rob found the craft beer scene in Houston too much to resist. As an avid craft beer supporter, he has managed one of Houston’s oldest craft beer bars before consulting for the craft industry. Rob then moved on to work with beer festivals. While planning a beer festival in the area, he moseyed on up to a barstool next to Crazy Mountain’s very own Kevin Selvy. That chance encounter would lead to a new opportunity to work with the team at Crazy Mountain. When not enjoying all things beer, Rob loves fishing, hiking, expanding his vinyl collection, and anything involving a pool…It is hot in Texas, y’all!

Isha was born on the wrong side of the tracks in North St. Louis. Rescued by Chris's brother, Isha was miraculously able to kick her smack habit and leave the thug life behind. When Chris brought her out to Colorado, she realized her love of snow and chasing fox and deer. When Isha is not testing the quality of our grain shipments, she loves to frolic in the snow with her brewery doggie buddies. She is partial to taking long naps during the day when she is not supervising her dad's engineering work. Isha also likes to let all visiting female dogs know that she is the queen of the brewery.
