“Our Fallen Founding Father”
Dr Paul Ogg was a great friend, guide and mentor to our entire crew and the whole craft beer industry he loved so much. A molecular biologist and professor at Colorado School of Mines, Paul was one of the most avid beer lovers to ever grace this earth and shared that passion without fear or regret. His vast knowledge of beer was only ever eclipsed by his expertise in yeast and is in fact the reason Declaration is uniquely yeast centric in the craft beer industry. It even earned him the nickname “Yeast Yoda” around the brewery. We will always strive to live his dream, to make great beer and make better friends. Every day, we get to enjoy the statement he made for us in our beer. Thanks Paul, we love you and we miss you.
