Paul Vincent

President
close
About Paul:
Paul Vincent began brewing in 2009 with a small equipment kit that his wife bought him for his birthday while living in Oregon. Paul quickly found a passion in homebrewing and continued to brew extract in Portland, Phoenix, Ireland. Returning to Phoenix on a permanent basis allowed him to switch to all grain and get deeper into the basic roots of homebrewing. Paul has been an active member in ASH since 2010 and 2017 is his first year serving on the ASH Board as Treasurer. In his adult life, Paul has worked with a large US bank since 1990. His activities outside of homebrewing and earning a living, have included rock climbing, snow boarding, cycling and skydiving.

Treasurer

About Phil:
Phil has been a homebrewer for several years. He enjoys adjunct brewing to provide subtle enhancements to base style beers. He loves craft beer and would like to open his own brewery some day so he can share more of the beer he loves to make. This is his second year on the ASH Board. He organized some fun things last year, such as wort thefts and open house brew days with local breweries. He hopes to help bring more member involved activities to the club this year and involve more breweries in our activities. He says, "If you're not having fun, you better be having fun with it. Slainte!"
