Chris Juergen
Founder, Owner & Brew Master

Chris has spent many years working in the beverage industry and has been head brew master for some major beer brands. Over the years, Chris has developed dozens of new beers that have hit the market and made a big splash. At Paradigm Brewing, Chris is responsible for day-to-day brewing operations, cellar operations and overall packaging operations and logistics. He will also be inventing and developing great beers every step of the way.

Along with what happens on-premise, Chris will be scouting the globe in search of the finest ingredients to brew Paradigm’s distinct and quality beers. Chris has often been quoted as saying “I’ll dump it on the ground before I sell a bad or inferior batch of beer.” Chris truly cares about quality and delivering a top-notch product.

Did we mention he is a professor as well? Chris developed and teaches a course at Texas A&M University called Brewery Operations and Management. That’s why he is affectionately known around here as Professor Pils.
