Ethan Allured is the Head Brewer at Market Brewing Co. While in university he tried a Belgian beer that was such a revelation, it inspired him to start brewing. Using home brewing equipment borrowed from his Chemistry advisor, he began with simple recipes that evolved along with his tastes. Deciding that brewing was more interesting than a research career, he attended UC Davis and sat the IBD Diploma in Brewing exams in 2011. After brewing in Vancouver for 5 years, he brings his production knowledge and love of crafting flavourful beers to Market Brewing Co. When not brewing, cleaning or fixing something, you can find him dirtying up a kitchen, trying new restaurants, cycling, hiking or paddling off into the distance with a good beer.
