Faces of Craft Beer: Base Camp Beer Works Making a Splash in the Grand Junction Brewery Scene

Brian Fischer - Base Camp Beer Works - Grand Junction

We sat down with, Owner & Operations Manager, Brian Fischer at Base Camp Beer Works in Grand Junction to figure out how a high school teacher goes from public education to homebrewing to opening a brewery!

Describe your company culture in 3 words:

Creative, Fun, Inclusive.

What is your favorite thing about working in a brewery?

Beer is a creative outlet! I used to homebrew and built a pretty awesome set-up in my garage. It was a way to be creative outside of my day job of teaching everyone’s kids! I know it might be *difficult* to imagine, but being around teenagers all day can be mentally exhausting!

What's your favorite beer on tap right now and why?

Hero Juice Hazy IPA. Love how fruit / citrus forward it is.

If your company culture was a celebrity, who would it be and why?

If she was still alive, Betty White. Funny, caring, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously!

Are there any awards/recognitions you're particularly proud of?

Southwest Fresh Hop Fest – 1st Place.

See the photo above, we love this Fresh Hop Festival in Montrose that Billy Goat Hop Farm hosts every fall, so this was a fun win for us!

How would you describe your style?

A blend of high quality tradition and creative risk taking.

Come say hi and grab a beer with us in the taproom next time you’re in Grand Junction!
