Meet the Schram Brewery Team: Aaron L.
Aaron L., not to be confused Aaron S. (owner and winemaker), is another one of our brewers who has been on board with us for almost 2 years. Another easy way to distinguish between the two Aaron’s, Aaron L. has the Charlie Brown pumpkin patch tatoos on both forarms–you can’t miss him! Meet Aaron L.

Where are you from? Chanhassen
When did you first start brewing? I started home brewing back in 2011 and professionally (a term I use loosely) in 2013.
Favorite Schram beer: That’s like asking me what my favorite Michael Bolton song is……..ALL OF THEM!!! But if I had to pick one it would be our Schram Weisse. It’s a great all around brew that’s very refreshing and sticks to the tradition of great Bavarian beers.
Favorite non-Schram craft beer (or style): I’m a big fan of Bent Paddle’s 14 degree ESB. The boys up in Duluth really nailed this one. My most favorite all around beer though is Lagunitas New Dogtown Ale.
What do you love about Schram? I grew up in the farm fields of Minnesota before moving to the big city. So Schram to me is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city and gives me a chance to breathe. It really gives a person the sense of the simple life. We also have a great group of people all working together to make it work.
Favorite quote? “Beer is the cause of and solution to all of life’s problems.” ~ Homer J. Simpson.
What do you like to do besides brew beer? Drink beer.
