— Holy big beer news, Batman: Deep Ellum Brewing Company announced today that Jeremy Hunt -- whose resume includes former head brewer at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery -- will take over as brewmaster following Drew Huerter's exit in April.

Most recently, Hunt was brewmaster at Bluegrass Brewing Company in Louisville, Kentucky, overseeing all aspects of that company's brewing operations. There, he implemented and executed a quality control program, with specific attention to bottling -- a major boon for Deep Ellum's relatively young canning program.

Hunt also gained experience with recipe development, most notably at Dogfish Head, where his experimentation with rose water and petal flavors made its way into the brewery's collaboration with Samuel Adams. According to a press release, Hunt was also instrumental in growing the company from "60,000 barrels to 160,000 barrels in just under 4 years."

"He’s excited to maintain an already excellent portfolio, but don’t be shocked to see some left or right of center line beers coming down the pipeline," said Deep Ellum founder John Reardon in a press release. Reardon also said that while the "courting" process took weeks, Hunt "had [him] from hello" thanks to his talent, solid resume, and "remarkably magnetic personality."

Hunt makes his DEBC debut in early July and will be joined by other new team members: brewer David Hauptman and cellerman Jason Herrington.
