Vince and Lisa Wawrzynski
President and VP of Lincoln Court Brewery, Inc.
President and Brewmaster of
New World Ales
The mastermind behind New World Ales, Mark Denari has been brewing for over six years and recently graduated from the UC Davis Master Brewers Program. During his time there, he realized the science of brewing suggested that using traditional brewing methods in place of more convenient modern alternatives created a superior product. Inspired to pay tribute to these traditional methods, Mark set out to create what New World Ales has become today, and he is excited to share a bit of history with you through our premium, artisan American ales.
Vince Wawrzynski is the type of guy who would sail around the world on his own and be able to pull an F-18 out of dire straits...because he has. His international travel experience was an inspiration for him to start his own brewery, Lincoln Court Brewery, Inc., with Lisa DeRuyter in the summer of 2013. Since then, the couple has been brewing custom contract beers, and we are glad to build on the strong foundation already set by Vince and Lisa at Lincoln Court Brewery Inc.
When we first arrived at what would become New World Ales Hopyard, one particular goat caught our attention with his endearing smirk and friendly nature. Over the weeks of construction and planting at the hopyard, Billy the Goat became a friend to us and simply wanted to be part of the action. Coming to our call, he enjoys getting his head scratched between his horns as well as a tail-wag inducing back scratch. While his official job is to help recycle spent grains and hops, Billy has unofficially become New World Ale’s mascot with his charming...goatiness.
