Drew Kostic joins Lonerider as our newest brewer!


We’re excited to announce our new brewer, Drew Kostic! Here’s a little more about him.

Drew Kostic is joining the Lonerider brewing team after relocating from Brooklyn, NY, in October of last year.  Drew has been a commercial brewer since 2018 when he jettisoned his six-year legal practice to follow his dream.  Drew is a graduate of Auburn University’s Brewing Science and Brewery Operations graduate program (AUBrew), Duke Law (sorry Tar Heel fans!), and Colgate University.  He loves brewing (and drinking) a plethora of different styles and can’t wait to bring his own zany ideas to the Lonerider brewhouse.  Drew loves to listen to his ever-expanding vinyl collection in his free time, go for a run (believe it or not), and hang with his sweet basset hound rescue puppy, Lola.  If you want to see how Drew started to brew, you can check out his transition from law to beer in the documentary Brewmaster from 4th Row Films, now streaming across many services and for free on Amazon Prime.

Welcome to the team, Drew!
