MEET THE FOUNDERS WYNDEE & DAVE
Co-owners and married couple, Wyndee and Dave Forrest, conjured up the big idea for CraftHaus Brewery while traveling through Europe. They noticed that they were immersed in a craft beer culture where people take their time to enjoy quality beer just as much as they enjoy talking to the people around them. Now, they want to bring that back and help build their Las Vegas community one pint at a time.
Also, Wyndee and Dave were successful in changing city licensing to a more modern, craft-friendly license. Dave's craft beer roots started with a passion for homebrewing and bringing people together around a beer or two. Wyndee's background is in working as a publicist on the Las Vegas Strip. They are both University of Nevada, Las Vegas graduates.
MEET Cameron Fisher-Head Brewer
Cameron started home brewing a decade ago while attending University Nevada, Las Vegas and quickly found a passion for creating hoppy concoctions. He started with Odyssey Beerwerks located in Colorado, on day one and quickly found his way into the brewhouse and began whipping up delicious recipes and brewing full time. He spent a year in Portland refining his craft and honing his craft beer skills. Upon moving back to Colorado, he returned to Odyssey Beerwerks and brought some Pacific Northwest flair to his newest brews. He is excited to join the CraftHaus team and share his knowledge to help grow the Las Vegas craft beer community. He enjoys brewing beers that are out of traditional beer style guidelines, as well as more classic styles such as India Pale Ales and Belgian Ales. His favorite beer is the next one.
Bryson gained an appreciation for different flavors and great food growing up around his Italian grandparents’ restaurant and cooking with family. He found his love of beer while brewing in a backyard with friends and became passionate about it after brewing a Braggot, which accentuates the different possibilities of beer. Bryson finds joy in the depth and complexity of barrel-aged beers and sours. He came to us from an Assistant Brewer position at Mike Hess Brewing in San Diego, a highly respected and award-winning brewery. He also operated a mobile canning line prior all over Southern California. Bryson is completing his Professional Certificate in Brewing from UC San Diego Extension as well as earned a Bachelor’s degree from UC Santa Cruz. When Bryson is not in the brewery you are likely to find him on his mountain bike, hiking, at the Disc Golf course, or barbecuing with family and friends. He is excited to join CraftHaus and be a part of their creativity and growth.
