Jeremy Myers – Head Brewer
Without going into a long winded speech about how much I love beer and how I came to appreciate it so much, let’s just say I live, eat, sleep, and die beer just like anyone that would want to work long hours for low pay…but, I digress. I graduated from Penn State in 1998 with a degree in Telecommunications and after spending the better part of 10 years as a high school teacher and technology coordinator, network/IT manager, and print shop/record label manager I decided to follow my love of beer to the next level. After home brewing for a few years I came to the conclusion that there had to be some way to turn my home brewing into something of a career. I started in May of 2008 as an unpaid intern at River Horse Brewing in Lambertville, New Jersey, where I was later hired as a Brewer after I attended The Siebel Institute in the fall of 2008. I stayed at River Horse nearly two years, and to be honest, I had no intention of starting a brewery at all when I left. After leaving River Horse I quickly joined the staff at The Craft Beer Outlet in NE Philadelphia and, again, jumped back into learning as much about beer and brewing as possible. In March of 2010 I took the BJCP certification exam and hope to continue my passion for craft beer by volunteering and judging beer competitions in the area.
I see beer as much as an art form as a science, but at the end of the day it’s simply four basic ingredients and how you use them that make all the difference. My favorite beer styles are mainly German styles like Pilsners, Hefeweizens, Kölsch, and Weizenbocks, but I’d be a liar if i didn’t say that I can be a hop head from time to time and didn’t appreciate a well brewed Belgian Tripel or Golden Strong.
I love talking about beer and brewing, so please feel free to strike up a conversation about any subject at all regarding either if and when you see me out and about. The first pint’s on me!
Rob Jahn – Assistant Brewer
Rob’s love of good beer has grown with each new and interesting beer he gets his hands on. Like many, after graduating from Rowan University Rob felt compelled to do something other than what he went to school for. Home brewing was something he picked up after college and through some friends Rob and Jeremy both realized they had a mutual love and interest in brewing on a larger scale and more importantly, for themselves and not someone else. Since that connection Rob has been soaking anything and everything about beer and brewing attended Siebel in the Spring of 2011, just in time to put all that knowledge and eagerness to good use at Neshaminy Creek.
Steve “The Animal” Capelli – Assistant Brewer
A native of Langhorne and graduate of Neshaminy High School, Steve’s passion for craft beer has grown from his culinary background and shifted to brewing. After training at Le Cordon Bleu San Francisco and working at Hog Island Oyster Company, Steve spent a year at The Ritz in Philadelphia working with Kevin Spraga and then headed back to San Francisco to run Hog Island Oyster Bar. After working 10 years in the culinary scene, Steve joined the team at Neshaminy Creek Brewing. ”With cooking, you can at least try it that day or at least the next day, brewing on the other hand, you have to wait a much longer time in hopes everything went correctly during the process. You don’t get to add a pinch of hops or malt half way through the process if you don’t think it’s going to turn out correctly,” says Steve as he continues to home brew and come up with new ideas for certain styles that may end up in a Neshaminy Creek keg or bottle in the near future.
