Favorite Craft Beer:

Adam enjoys beers with bold flavors and a smooth finish. His favorite beer, the Gulden Draak 9000 Belgian Quad, embodies exactly that.

Adam Gilbertson

Taproom/Events Manager

Adam is a Minnesota native who has lived all around the Twin Cities. He has a background in hospitality, business operations and supply chain management, and information systems and IT project management. With a mind geared towards maximum efficiency, Adam works hard to create memorable events for the brewery and ensure guests always have a great experience in the taproom.

His first experience with craft beer came while bartending during college at The Town & Country Golf Club in St. Paul when they began branching out from the standard Coors Light-style tap list to include Minnesota staples like Summit EPA and Lift Bridge Farm Girl. Since then, he’s been hooked and has wasted no time exploring (responsibly) all the craft beer world has to offer! Heritage Liquor Store in Maplewood became a weekly visit to pick up the latest rare and new-to-market craft beer. Adam worked for 3-1/2 years bartending at Boom Island Brewery in Minnetonka before moving to Hackamore Brewery…a mere 4-minute drive from his home!

Adam lives with his wife Nikki and their Golden Retriever Nora (who will be a regular on Hackamore’s patio!) and has been a Chanhassen resident since 2020. When Adam isn’t at work, you can find him sampling the latest multi-course tasting menu around the Twin Cities, playing the latest strategy board game, or watching one of the over 900 movies in his personal collection.
