Postdoc Brewing was the name of Tom Schmidlin’s garage 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 opened to the public in late 2014. Tom’s many years of brewing experience and knowledge of the craft brewing industry helped get the enterprise off the ground.
As Postdoc has grown, we are exceptionally lucky to have some great contributors on the team. Jason Heitt runs a tight, yet entertaining ship in the taproom. Brian Donohue brings his brewing experience and attention to detail as our Lead Brewer. Cole Ridley has taken on the marketing manager role and is invaluable as our assistant brewer. John Lees does a fantastic job keeping the beer moving out the door as our Sales Manager. We’re very proud of our team!
We look forward to serving the Washington community, and beyond, for many years to come.
