Aaron Jackson grew up in Tazewell, TN and attended Maryville College for Business Management. He met Alex Violette through their fraternity (DKE) and his appreciation for craft beer started after being introduced to local and regional breweries in the Southeast. He began homebrewing shortly after graduation and his passion for beer grew along with his knowledge. Jackson worked in the finance industry for over eight years, respectively moving up in his field, yet he was always most excited about his beer collection and latest homebrew batches. When Alex moved back to Knoxville to open a new craft brewery, the two reconnected and Jackson was given the opportunity to pursure his dream of working with craft beer. He has since learned how to brew and cellar on a professional brewing system and gains more beer knowledge every day.
In his spare time, Jackson enjoys reading, hiking, and spending time with his wife and dog.
