If we had to choose two words to describe Ian, it would be passionate and fearless. He is a chef, a brewer, a gardener, a beekeeper and a modern-day MacGyver.
His passion for cooking has earned him numerous awards and accolades throughout the years, like a national TV appearance on the Cooking Channel’s "Unique Eats" and the designation of “Denver’s Best Restaurants” by 5280 Magazine while behind the line at Centro.
Since opening BRU, Ian has also fearlessly reinterpreted the world of food and beer by combining his craft of cuisine with the art of the bottle. This combination of fearlessness and passion haven’t gone unnoticed. In just a few short years of being open, he won the silver medal at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival for his LOCH Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, Best Brewpub from Westword and a spot among the “6 Beer and Food Innovators” named by Draft Magazine.
