Meet Our Team

Despite our continued growth, Nickel Brook remains an independently owned and family-run company. The Romano brothers are involved in every aspect of the company, and it’s not unusual to find friends and family helping building boxes or waxing bottles of Kentucky Bastard fresh off the line.  We pride ourselves on finding people that truly love what they do, and the products that we make.

Our sales reps are the front line of our company, and we want their enthusiasm for premium craft beer to be infectious.

Our brewers are the heart of everything, bringing years of experience, education, and training to every batch they brew.

Our drivers and logistics team make sure every case and keg gets to where it needs to be when it needs to be there and our Events and Marketing team spreads the gospel of great beer far and wide.

Take a look below, and get to know the people who make Nickel Brook one big family!
