Paul moved from his beloved Brisbane, Queensland six years ago to chase a passion and enrolled in a Post Graduate of Brewing at ECU Joondalup. Six months into the course he showed his potential landing a shared brewing role at the award winning Monk Brewery down in Fremantle. After a few years of sprucing his wares and collecting more medals and awards for the Monk, Colonial Brewing Co. came calling. Not wanting to pass up the opportunity to be in a special area like Margaret River, he took the role of Production Brewer before moving up to the leading role a few years later. More awards and medals came his way, along with growing the brand and putting special beers into some cool cans, revolutionizing the market.
His time in Margaret River increased his passion about looking after local, sharing brewing grains with local farms for feed, spending time with regional producers, chefs, wine markers and attending numerous local events. It has opened his eyes about how lucky he is to be living in WA and wants to keep the education going being part of special events like WADS. After that he will be heading up the soon to be opened new inner city brewery, NoWhereMan Brewing Co. in West Leederville. Where all their beers will be brewed on site and serving from their own bar alongside local food, wine, cider and spirits from WA.
