The staff of Yellow Springs Brewery in July 2015, including owners Nate Cornett and Lisa Wolters and master brewer Jeffrey McElfresh (front row), along with brewing assistants, bartenders and managers.
Nate Cornett, Owner
Nate has worked at everything from changing oil on cars to plumbing houses to weld inspection in the semi-conductor industry. A few years ago he took up homebrewing and dreamed of opening his own brewery one day. Nate oversees operations. Contact him about equipment or supplies or for media inquiries.
Lisa Wolters, Owner
Lisa has experience in pottery and advertising. She served as creative director and partner of an advertising agency where branding and marketing became a part of her language. She contributes to the Brewery by adding her own style of creativity in the taproom and behind the scenes in the office and coordinates all art events. Contact Lisa for media inquiries or to ask about exhibiting your art in the brewery.
Jeffrey McElfresh, Master Brewer
Jeffrey began homebrewing after purchasing his first brewing kit in Northern California in 1998. After he moved back to Ohio, the Dayton native began volunteering at breweries across the state, until he found his way to Yellow Springs. Now he makes sure we always have tasty beers on tap. Contact Jeffrey for inquiries about ingredients or collaborations.
Shawn Combs, Sales Manager
Shawn joined YSB in spring 2015 with experience in sales in the action sports industry. Shawn is in charge of outside sales and delivery of our beer to bars and restaurants in your neighborhood. Contact Shawn for wholesale purchases, including kegs for bars and restaurant and cans for retail establishments.
Chris Hutson, Events Coordinator
Chris schedules all events outside of our taproom, including everything from large craft beer festivals to tap takeovers in small neighborhood bars. Chris has been collecting and drinking craft beer for many years, you could say he’s our beer aficionado. If you don’t believe us, you’ll just have to check out his “beer cellar” for yourself. Contact him if you have an event that you’d like for us to attend.
