Ogma Brewing Company

A Unique Neighborhood Brewery

Our inspiring environment, welcoming atmosphere, and community-focused events will bring people together. The beer we make will set us apart and draw local and regional patrons back to Jackson for more.

Who We Are

Troy Craft

Head Brewer

Whenever there was a chance to learn, or improve, he had the passion and drive to get there. Troy spent many months home brewing and volunteering at breweries. Eventually, finding his home at Dark Horse Brewing Company in Marshall, MI, he spent 8 years working from the bottom to the top; 1 year in packaging, 2 years in the cellar, 3 years shift brewing, and 2 years as Head Brewer managing a team of four brewers. Here he learned the importance and impact fermentation has on beer flavor, its quality and stability, as well as various process techniques and manipulation of ingredients.

Troy’s position at Ogma Brewing Company will cover all facets of recipe design and creation, inventory management, process efficiency and equipment maintenance, record keeping and reporting, and educating staff about Ogma Brewing Company and their beers.

Kevin Craft

Project Manager

Leveraging 20+ years in residential and commercial construction, Kevin is Project Manager at Ogma and is responsible for total project management. This will include the monitoring of budgets, negotiating subcontracts, and providing day-to-day communication with the project team to ensure jobs are done right, remain on schedule and finish within budget.

Kevin will also control the build out of the brewpub and will be cross trained as a brewer to help Troy with production needs.

Andrew Volk

Brand Development

Adding 10+ years of professional marketing and entrepreneurial business experience to the ownership level, Andrew will head-up Marketing & Brand Development at Ogma Brewing Company. Crafting his marketing knowledge in the higher education and health care spaces, Andrew will funnel these skills into his passion of creating and nurturing the relationship between the community and Ogma through the interweaving of in-house experiences, brewery events and a dedicated approach to social media engagement.

Seasoned in web development, Andrew has built and will maintain the brewery website and an online store where patrons are able to purchase merchandise and event tickets. He will also lead in content creation, writing, photography, podcasting and digital advertising campaigns for the brewery.

From the Get-Go

In addition to our top notch liquids, we’re offering more to ensure patrons love their time at Ogma Brewing Company and come back for more.

Doing It Right

It Starts Now

Investing in equipment that will allow us to scale our volume, while sticking to a precise brewing schedule, will ensure we hit the ground hauling ass and meeting demands in both beer production and sales behind the taps.

TO-GO

Take OGMA Home

In addition to our growlers & crowlers, patrons can take home bottles from our curated “Michigan Made” beer cooler. This will be stocked with mainstays and special releases from other great local breweries.

Food

Gotta Eat

Our brewery will have a limited menu regularly offering gourmet grilled cheeses, delicious soups and bomb-ass meat and cheese boards. Local food trucks will be featured on occasion.
