Tomas Schmidt

Brewmaster (London)

Tom was born and raised in the beer Mecca of the world- Czech Republic- and for 30 years, he toiled away as a Brewmaster and process/quality expert for major Canadian brewing companies. He was enjoying a leisurely retirement, making his poolside home-brew when Spearhead came calling.

He readily gave up retirement in exchange for the chance to brew really exciting craft beer. He didn’t realize how different craft beer would be from the mega breweries.

They all have mainstay recipes that never allow for deviation. Now he has the ultimate freedom to create whatever he wants and to invent the recipe for the next great brew. We’ve turned out some crazy beers, but much like cooking, brewing craft beer isn’t just about adding ingredients for the sake of adding ingredients. It’s about using the right amounts of only the highest quality.

Every batch Tom brews is his effort to improve upon perfection. And when each batch is done, the best part of his job is that he gets to drink beer.
