Matt Barnaby

 

Matt Barnaby is your jack-of-all-trades kind of guy. He’s son to two Air Force veterans, and is a Coast Guard veteran himself. After growing up in Summerville, South Carolina, Matt was stationed in Alaska for two tours and he knew he wanted to make this his home. He is married to Kelly Barnaby, who was born and raised in Sitka, Alaska. The couple have been living in Juneau, Alaska for nearly six years and have two children. The couple are very excited to be bringing some finely crafted brews to the community of Juneau and anyone who visits here. Matt specializes in brewing American style ales and enjoys experimenting with wild harvested ingredients that Southeast has to offer, while maintaining the integrity of the beer’s style. 

When not brewing, the couple enjoy hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, hockey and snow sports. Matt has been active in the community since moving to Juneau, and is currently a volunteer with Capital City Fire and Rescue.
