Jacob Schmidt

Head Brewer

You could say that Jacob was born to be a brewer. He tried to follow a different life path, studying History and University. But sitting behind a desk, reading books was not for him- Spearhead was. Brewing is in his blood, it is part of his family destiny.


Jacob is a self-proclaimed “beer freak”. Being part of the Spearhead team means that he’s not just looking to try the next great beer, he’s brewing the next great beer. Brewing without constraints allows Jacob to produce some really creative and amazing beers.


What he loves about his job- besides beer tasting- is meeting people at bars and events, listening to their tasting notes and taking in the camaraderie that comes with a simple pint of beer. It’s incredible how well people can get to know each other over one little drink, and for that, we have Jacob to thank.
