Joe’s first experience with world beer styles came through his homebrewing hobby and his first sips of craft beer produced in Portland, ME (Geary’s, Casco Bay Brewing, Gritty’s). Later in life his business travels allowed him to experience the various cultures and beer styles of Europe. Upon deciding to step away from a Corporate career he turned his energy to founding Brewery Extrava to share world class, locally made versions of Belgian and other world beers styles with craft beer enthusiasts in the Portland area. BE Thankful. BE True. BE Yourself.
