Gabe Lucas – Owner, Sales Manager, and Cider Maker
In 1993 Gabe had his first taste of cider in the UK. Since then, there's been no turning back. Gabe, already entrenched in the 90’s DIY culture, had a passion for creativity that "kickstarted" his life of brewing. This life, coupled with Gabe's natural affinity for process has led him to trying new and exotic techniques in cider manufacturing while also fulfilling a strong interest in collecting and perfecting techniques of sanitation and sterilization protocols. In his time knowing Jesse, he's gone from occasionally helping with brewing both cider and beer to working with his friend to turn his passion into an occupation.
Jesse Ferarris – Owner, Plant Manager, and Cider Maker
Known to his friends as “Dr. Fermento”, Jesse Ferraris has been learning, perfecting, and experimenting with the fermentation of a variety of food stuffs for over twenty years; from homemade sour kraut and kim-chi to yogurt, all using cultures he cultivated himself. From there it was a short step to making his own kombucha, beer, and cider. He brings that passion for the process to the cider house.
