Meet the Team: Travis Londen, Brewer
We’re so proud of the liquids that come out of our Brewery and our amazing brewing team that takes the process from start to finish. Excited to introduce another face on our team who puts his heart and soul into every beer brewed in our Boston brewery!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I grew up in Connecticut, but always dreamed of living in Boston. When I am not working you can find me hiking in the Lynn woods, checking out other area breweries or hanging with my cat Pedey.
How did you get into craft beer and the brewing industry?
I’ve been brewing beer professionally for 3 years starting at Brewery Legitimus in Connecticut. I moved to Boston for Grad school and kept working in beer and ultimately found a home at DBco after graduating!
What does your day-to-day look like at DBco?
I have been at DBco for 6 months. My day to day ranges a lot depending on the brewing schedule and what’s on deck with our own DBco beers and partners. For the most part, I work on the hot side of the beer production, which is the part of the brew day where I’m making wort. This starts when we’re milling grains and ends when we kill the flame on the kettle. From there, the rest of the team takes over the remainder of the brewing process!
What’s your favorite beer to brew? What about to drink?
I love to brew Belgian style beers and I love to drink lagers and dark beers!
Do you have any advice for brewers just starting out?
You need a willingness to learn and start from the bottom with the goal of working your way – this is essential to really make it in the beer industry Education is important, but experience trumps education.
What do you like best about the industry?
The collaboration. Everyone is really passionate about the product they make!
