Postdoc Brewing Company

17625 NE 65th ST Suite 100
Redmond, WA 98052


About Us:

Postdoc Brewing was the name that Head Brewer and co-owner, Tom Schmidlin gave to his garage home brewery while he completed his PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Washington.  The name stuck and became a commercial reality once Tom and his wife, Julie decided to go into business together with neighbors Debbie and Jonny Chambers in late 2013.  The business relationship has been fortuitous.  Tom's many years of brewing experience and knowledge of the craft brewing industry has combined with Debbie's past work in large-scale manufacturing operations, Jonny's ability in marketing and technology and Julie's work as a Project Manager to get the enterprise off the ground.

Postdoc Brewing is also exceptionally lucky to have some great contributors on staff.  Bobby Wood, Certified Cicerone, runs a tight, yet entertaining ship in the taproom.  Matt Sherman brings some great brewing experience as our Lead Assistant Brewer.  Alex McGall, the man who appears to know everyone, runs our outside sales and logistics. We're very proud of our team!
