Former COOP and Redbud brewmaster Chase Healey — Colin’s brother — will join Prairie effective immediately and assume the role of brewmaster and co-founder.
Colin will continue in his role as director of marketing and branding, as well as co-founder.
Here’s a statement from Colin:
With recent changes to Prairie’s production outlook, we found it necessary for (Chase) to come on board in order to help direct Prairie, so that it can meet its full potential. In light of this change, Prairie Artisan Ales will have more big news next week.
I recently interviewed Colin, just days before his first beer hit the market. You can read that interview here.
Stay tuned for more news.
