ABOUT COPPER KETTLE BREWING COMPANY
JEREMY GOBIEN Ph.D
is the owner and Copper Kettle's head brewer. Jeremy has been a homebrewer with his wife Kristen for years and decided to uproot from Raleigh, NC and put his engineering and brewing experience to the test by opening Copper Kettle Brewing Company in 2011. Jeremy has his Ph.D from NC State in material science engineering and has found many similarities between his degree and brewing. Jeremy's favorite styles of beer are Belgians and Germans. 
KRISTEN KOZIK 
is the owner and office manager of Copper Kettle. Kristen is also a registered nurse for the Childrens Hospital Colorado where she works part time. Kristen is responsible for managing the daily operations of the business, along with wearing multiple hats around the brewery as needed.

OUR GOAL
The idea behind constructing this business was to create what America seems to have lost, the traditional neighborhood brewery in which customers know one another. While we know we can't re-create the set of Cheers, I'm sure we'll see a few Norms in the tasting room! 
KRISTIN HABEGGER
has been a bartender at CKBC since 2012 and CKBC's longest employee. She used to be "former Brew Club member #36". Kristin has enjoyed beer for many years in Toledo, Ohio and has learned what real craft beer is made of in Denver. Copper Kettle has made some of her favorite beers, like the Winter Spice and the Saison. But besides beer, Kristin enjoys playing volleyball, running, movies and music. Kristin is currently in grad school. (Our regulars call her "K2")​
PAUL MAHONEY
is Copper Kettle's tasting room manager since 2012. Born and raised in Florida, Paul found his passion through home brewing while in college. Quick to spread his knowledge of beer styles, proper pouring techniques, and passion of the craft beer industry, he uprooted from Orlando and made the trek to Colorado. He is an equal opportunity ambassador of all beer styles. Paul has tried 1,000s of beers from across the world. He is a Cicerone Certified ™ Beer Handler and Server. Ask him about his favorites!

If you see Charlie around, call his name and he'll be sure to swing on by for a neck scratch. Charlie's Golden Strong, available in year round bombers, was named after him.
