Meet the Baron: Harazet Jimenez

Age: 37harazetjimenez

How long have you been a Baron? About a year and a half.

How long have you been brewing? I don’t brew right now, but I have “assisted” my friend Kevin Meves a couple times.

What got you into brewing? I don’t brew alone as of yet, but I want to learn so that when I go back to Puerto Rico (my home country) I can make beers that are not available commercially. I need to sign up for one of those “Brew U” introductory classes.

What is your favorite style and why? American IPA, I really love the hops grown in the Pacific Northwest.

What is your favorite beer? Three Floyds Alpha King pale Ale.

What is your favorite brewery and why? Bells, they make some of the most wonderful beers in the mid- west.

What is your commercial to homebrew consumption ratio? Pretty much commercial right now since I rely on others for the homebrew.

What has been your favorite Baron meeting? The Stone Brewing night was very memorable.
