Meet our new Quality Analyst… Dom!

Over the next few weeks we’ll be introducing our new committee members!

Today Dom, our new quality analyst, did his first distillation therefore we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to tell you all more about him. Dom has been active in Stu Brew all throughout his first year and has attended many events, participated in a brew day and is a member of our home brew club. We can’t wait to have him on the team!
