Gil Peterson


Gil is the newest member of the Fairhope team, joining the crew as a brewer in July 2016. His passion for craft beer goes back many years, and he followed that passion to brew school with the American Brewer's Association in Vermont in 2012. Soon thereafter, Gil packed up his bags from his home state of Michigan and moved to Nebraska to produce beer at Blue Blood Brewing Company in Lincoln. Maybe it was his Big 10 roots the led him to the Cornhusker State (Nebraska joined the B10 in 2011), or maybe it was just the opportunity to brew craft beer. After 3 years away from the water, Gil took advantage of his opportunity to take on a new challenge in Fairhope. Keep an eye on the barrel-aged beers to come, as one of Gil's former brews (barrel-aged Belgian farmhouse) won a Silver Medal at the World Beer Championship.
