With a business plan and interested investors, Griff decided to focus on getting a feel for brewing on a 10 barrel brewing system. This was the system size that many craft brewers use and the same size of the system that Griff now works on at Mojave Brewing. Griff heard from a friend that Joyride Brewing in Edgewater, Colorado was looking for a brewing intern, so he sent them some of his beer. After tasting Griff’s beer they decided that he would make a great addition to their team. Within days, Griff was working alongside skilled brewers. This allowed him to improve as a brewer and get experience on the system that he knew he wanted to eventually use in his brewery.
