Jarrod was born and raised just outside the outskirts of Grand Rapids, MI. He was homeschooled for most of his life but somehow turned out pretty well adjusted. He attributes his love for nature and insatiable curiosity to having a unique upbringing filled with hours of outdoor exploration. He loves cycling, taking his beautiful dogs for walks, road-tripping with his strikingly beautiful wife Francesca, and making jewelry. He has worked with wood, bone, and seeds in their natural form since 2002. Jarrod has worked in the craft beer biz for over 14 years and has loved every minute of it, especially the beer part. He is so excited to work with the community-centered vision of Creston Brewery and he can’t wait to welcome you to one of the most welcoming places in town.
