Jennifer Talley

Jennifer Talley has been working in the craft brewing industry now for over 25 years. She started her career in 1991 in Salt Lake City, Utah. As Brewmaster for Squatters Pub Brewery and Director of Research and Development for Salt Lake Brewing Company she honed her brewing skills winning over 20 medals at the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup. After being the first woman to win the Russell Scherer Award for Innovation in Brewing in 2011, Jennifer decided to expand her brewing expertise by taking the role as Brewing Operations Manager at Redhook Ale Brewery. While at Redhook, Jennifer managed the day-to-day brewing and cellaring operations, developed new beer releases, implemented improved dry hopping techniques and was an integral member of the taste panel. Wanting to get back to the smaller side of craft and work on her sour beer barrel aging skills, Jennifer moved to Sonoma County and became the Lead Brewer at Russian River Brewing Company. Witnessing barrel aging on a production level was a definite highpoint. Besides her day to day work at the brewery, Jennifer is well immersed in the craft brewing industry as an international beer judge, industry speaker, Technical Committee member for the Masters Brewers Association of the Americas and Cicerone Examiner Currently, Jennifer has started her own brewery consulting firm, Talley Fermentations and is the North and South Sales Representative for Bespoke Brewing Solutions. In addition, she released her first book "Session Beer: Brewing for Flavor and Balance" in September of 2017. She is raising her two children Vienna age 13 and Dylan age 16 in the beautiful town of Grass Valley and can't wait to bring craft beer to her local community.
