10 Things You Didn’t Know About Our Tap Room Manager, Derek Rayner

We started with our Head Brewer a few weeks ago in our newest “Meet the Team” blog series so that you can get to know everyone on team and today we’re checking into the Tap Room! Derek Rayner joined our team early on and Derekhe’s been leading a great team up front for anyone that visits our space. Whether you’re looking to get in touch about a private event or have questions about what’s on tap, Derek’s your man. Here’s 10 things that you may or may not already know about Derek:


  1. I grew up in Berlin, NH and studied Communication at Keene State.

2. My love of craft beer started with Longtrail’s Doublebag.  I was hooked.

3. During my free time I love going out to eat with my girlfriend.  We make it a point to go out a few times a week to EAT.

4. Some of my favorite spots to grab a drink and a bite are Trina’s Starlight Lounge, Cambridge Brewing Company, Lonestar Taco Bar, Bisq, The Druid, Picco & Lord Hobo.  Nightshift is also a blast!

5. I can also talk fantasy football all day.

6. Zwickel is my favorite beer style.  It has the flexibility to change depending on how brewer’s perceive the style which is in part what makes it so exciting.

7. My favorite DBco beer has to be the V1 Double IPA.

8. I love the bar industry for it’s flexibility and sociability.  Let’s be real.  I’m surrounded by beer and people who are passionate about beer all day.  It’s a blast.

9. I’ve been in Dorchester for 9 years.  I love the diversity and sense of community.

10. I’m a sucker for sake.
