We Are Hydra Beer Company
The brain child of two metal rockers
Founded in 2015
Nick Name: Ryno
Favorite Hydra Beer: Brewmortal
When I converted to craft beer: I was given a 1-year subscription to a “Beer of the Month Club” as a birthday present back in 2006. Twelve craft beers from all over the country were delivered to my door one a month. Each package came with detailed descriptions of every beer including hop varieties, malt types & flavor notes. Some beers even came with food pairing suggestions. Since then, all I drink is craft beer.
Favorite part of my job at Hydra: I learn a lot, I taste new beers, & the people I work with & meet on a regular basis are great! What’s not to like?
Other talents: Master of the oil rig.
Guilty pleasure/s: Peanut butter filled pretzels, The Cranberries, shower beers & Jameson.
What’s in my fridge: Dogfish 90 minute, Pliny the Elder, Bell’s Hopsolution & Oberon, Deschutes Fresh Squeezed, Grain Belt Lock & Dam, old sandwich meat, ring bologna, coconut oil, leftover baked beans & a couple expired romaine heads.
If I was a beer: A dirty, cloudy, sticky dank Double IPA. Why? I’m unfiltered. I don’t care what people think of me. I prefer to share company with those who possess a well-rounded palate. Too much of me will give you a headache.
If you could hug a brewer… who & why?: I don’t hub people other than in consolation situations. Sorry. I prefer my space.

Favorite Hydra Beer: Unholy vanilla
When I converted to craft beer: I got hooked on the hop flavors of Sierra Nevada Pale ale and there was no looking back.
Favorite part of my job at Hydra: Meeting and hearing people say how much they enjoy our beer and taproom
Other talents: Writer/ Headbanger
Guilty pleasure/s: Anything involving marshmallows, and Huey Lewis and the News.
What’s in my fridge: Currently Boulevard tropical pale ale and Bells two hearted.
If I was a beer: Probably an IPA with tropical flavors because it reminds me of being close to the ocean which is where I love to be.
If you could hug a brewer… who & why?: Probably Todd Haug from Surly because he’s a fellow head banger and shares my love for cats.
