Tom started homebrewing during his undergrad days, and became fascinated with the science behind the process. A couple of career changes and a dotcom layoff later, his interest in brewing science led him to graduate school to study yeast. After finishing his PhD in Biochemistry and a few years as a postdoc, the time was right to follow his passion and open his own brewery, Postdoc Brewing. Now he works more and gets paid less than he ever did in graduate school, and doesn’t regret it one bit.
