Meet our Brewer

Jeff Tyler has been the head brewer for the Yak & Yeti Brewpub since June 2016. He’s originally from New York but spent most of his beer drinking years in Boston drinking his share of Heady Topper and Night Shift beer. Jeff has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and spent almost a decade working in various positions in the engineering world from a department of energy lab, to designing medical devices and even helping design the Roomba vacuum cleaner. Jeff has been brewing for 6 years, is a BJCP certified beer judge and has judged at competitions across New England.

Jeff is a big fan of NE style IPA’s, Belgian style ales and draws a lot of inspiration from the culinary world when crafting beer recipes. While you will find a continued line up of Yak & Yeti’s classic, award winning, beer styles, you will always find a new and exciting pilot batch on tap. Peanut butter, banana nut brown ale; Mayan style chocolate stout; and a Gose infused with lavender and hibiscus are a few but the list is always expanding!

Outside of brewing, Jeff likes to travel, road bike and spends a lot of time in the mountains snowboarding and going on hikes with his dog, Sammy. He also has some mean card tricks up his sleeves. If you catch him around the brewery he just might show you one.
