Meet the brewing enzymes experts
Mark Stevens is a Senior Research Associate at Novozymes and Co-Founder/Brewer at Tar Banks Brewing Co. in North Carolina. Growing up in a rural farming community, brewing interests began early on with fermentation in wine making. Having a diverse mechanical background and a degree in Biotechnology, his fascination with organisms on a molecular level paved the road for craft beer and homebrewing. After accepting a position with Novozymes, he learned about the many benefits of using enzymes where he worked closely in industries of biofuels, detergents, brewing, and fermentation. In 2017, he took his passion to the next level as Co-Founder of Tar Banks Brewing Co. and today he is using enzymes in his processes and providing guidance to fellow brewers with the use of enzymes for brewing.
Head Brewer - White Street Brewing
Born in the backyard of beer, J.D. Angell grew up less than a mile from the world’s largest single brewing facility. Years of hazardous materials safety here and a brief bit of industrial scientific research would give way to a craft beer and home brewing passion. Time with a liquid yeast manufacturer spurred interest in enzymes and began the technical journey. Since then, a decade in professional brewing has included consulting on processing, equipment, and fermentation specifics. Heading operations in five time zones has broadened his horizons, brought in awards, and provided him much to share.
