Settle Down Easy Brewing (SDE) is excited to announce the appointment of their Head Brewer Mr. Henry
Jager. Henry started as a passionate homebrewer, while earning an Environmental Studies degree at CU
Boulder. He completed an internship at the American Homebrewers Association in Boulder, Colorado. After
completing his assignment, Henry moved to Twisted Pine as Lead Brewer in Boulder. He was most proud of
recipe development and medals won at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) while at Twisted Pine.
In 2013 Henry moved back East to join Heavy Seas Brewing and start a family. He has spent the last five years
at Heavy Seas as Brewing Team Leader at their 45000+ barrel/year operation. He gained a tremendous
breadth and depth of experience at Heavy Seas but yearned to return to his roots of recipe design and
innovative beer production.
Henry had an instant connection with the team at SDE, who share his vision and values ‐ “I couldn’t be happier
to return to a more intimate brewery and help build it into a cornerstone of the local community. There are
many things that really excite me about joining the SDE team as I will be able to share my knowledge, passion
and enthusiasm for brewing quality beer while interacting with customers on a regular basis. I am really
looking forward to this new adventure.”
Henry is still a passionate homebrewer and regularly brews with his Dad, Charlie on the weekends. Henry loves
music and is an avid Grateful Dead fan. He is married to his wife Maurirose, they have a daughter Alice and
another baby on the way – Due December 26th.
It is with tremendous excitement we announce Henry joining the Settle Down Easy Team in mid‐July.
