Operating Partner

Jake, a native of Loretto, MN, has had a passion for Beer especially craft beer for as long as he can remember. Before joining the Hackamore Brewing Company as part owner and operator Jake worked in the property management industry, most recently as Multi-Site Property Manager in the Northloop and NE Mpls areas, specializing in high-end luxury apartments.

His first craft beer was Lucid Air (now Inbound Brew Co.), a present he received from his big brother Zac on his 21 st birthday. Throughout college and his early twenties, Jake learned to love the process of brewing by home brewing with his Cousin Nick Flies and Zac (president) on many, many occasions.

Jake is married to his wife Alexis, and they have resided in Waconia since 2017. When Jake is not at work you can find him at the ballpark in Delano working on the field and competing on the mound for the Athletics. Jake and his wife love to travel and especially like visiting national parks across the country.

Jake’s favorite craft beer style is NE IPA and is a huge fan of Rain Drops from Barrel Theory.
