Jennifer is a Brewer and Director of Brewery Programs at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery. In 2001, Jennifer was busy enjoying her favorite hobby, skiing, when she received a call from The Boston Beer Company, tapping her to join the team. Since her arrival in Boston, Jennifer's days have never been the same, with day-to-day duties including tasting Samuel Adams beers to ensure they meet high quality standards, working with the other brewers to create new and innovative recipes, and managing the many programs at the Boston Brewery. Throughout her years at Samuel Adams, Jennifer has brought her passion for brewing traditional and lost beer styles to the Boston Brewery along with her passion for barrel aging beers such as Samuel Adams Utopias and Kosmic Mother Funk. Additionally, she acts as a regular coach at the Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Speed Coaching Events and Pitch Room Competitions.
Since she started at Samuel Adams, Jennifer's hobbies have changed a bit: she is still partial to the slopes, but has added the hop fields of Southern Germany, in the Tettnang and Hallertau regions where Noble Hops are grown, to her list of favorite places to travel and enjoy a beer.
