About J Wakefield Brewing
It all started back in 2005 with a simple Mr. Beer homebrew kit. At the time, John had obtained his master’s degree in accounting and taken the occasional culinary class. What started off as a hobby quickly grew into a lifestyle—the lifestyle of a brewmaster. Since then, John has become a staple in the craft beer community. He has won multiple home brew competitions, and accolades within the professional industry, and has gained worldwide recognition. According to ratebeer.com and beeradvocate.com, his DFPF (Dragon Fruit/ Passion Fruit) and Miami Madness Berliner Weisse are currently ranked number one and two for best Berliner in the world. John took this respect and recognition and utilized it as a platform to push off from. He was one of the first brew masters to utilize a crowd-funded campaign—CrowdBrewed—in order to raise $55,000 to open his own brewery. To his surprise, his goal was reached within 30 hours of the campaign going live. After much hard work, dedication, and perseverance, J Wakefield Brewing finally opened its doors in January 2015.
So don’t forget to mark your calendars and join us on the 6th. We look forward to celebrating all things J Wakefield with everyone. Prost!
