About the New Hampshire Brewers Association »

Leadership

Kirsten Neves

President
Tuckerman Brewing Co

A homebrewer turned entrepreneur at 24. Kirsten co-founded Tuckerman Brewing Company in 1998 fueled by a passion for quality beer and the desire to live the White Mountain lifestyle to its fullest; taking advantage of, but never taking for granted, the spectacular area we call home. Tuckerman Brewing Co is now one of the longest-running owner-operated breweries in the state. Outside of her time spent at the brewery, Kirsten retreats to her slice of New Hampshire paradise in the quaint town of Eaton where she enjoys walks in the woods with her beloved dog Stump.

Dave Picarillo

Treasurer
Twin Barns Brewing Co

Dave is one of the co-founders of Twin Barns Brewing Company. He was raised in the Boston area but fell in love with the Lakes Region after a childhood family vacation. In 2001, Dave and his family bought a small cabin on the lake and have spent every free moment there since. Although a home brewer for many years, it was not until a brewery tour in New Hampshire with his partner Bruce that a plan came together for their own brewery, and realization of the dream was possible. On days that he is not at the Brewery, you will be able to find Dave hanging out on Lake Winnipesaukee or in the White Mountains. He is an avid hiker, well on his way to completing the New Hampshire 48 - 4000K footers. Don't worry, he will probably be carrying some Twin Barns beer to enjoy at the summit.

Steve O'Brien

Member at Large | Education Committee
Elm City Brewing Co

Steve began his foray into craft beer when he began home brewing in 2012. It didn’t take long for him to realize that he had a passion for beer, and needed to get into this industry. After managing a craft beer bar in the Boston area for a few years, Steve applied for a Front of House management position at Elm City Brewing with hopes of someday getting into the brewery. After a year and a half managing, Steve got his chance and took on the role as the assistant brewer. In June of 2018, he completed the Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering program at the American Brewers Guild, just as Elm City was looking to fill its head brewer position. The timing was perfect, and Steve slid comfortably into the role. Since then, he has brewed a wide variety of styles, began a small barrel program, and is continuously experimenting with new techniques and ingredients.

Andy Day

Andy is the owner of Cask & Vine, a craft beer bar he opened in 2012 as well as a brewer and owner of Daydreaming Brewing Company located in historic downtown Derry, NH.  For over 10 years he has taken a vested interest in promoting New Hampshire’s craft brewers through collaborations, beer-centric events, and cross-promotions.
