About this event

After traveling throughout the US and Overseas to the world’s paper mills, Tims’ interest (passion) in and for the locally made beers, from Baton Rouge to Boston, Bangkok or Beijing inspired a confidence to leave a perfectly good paying job in 1996 to establish Arcadia Brewing Company, in Battle Creek, Michigan. Dedicated to distinctive, artisanal British-inspired beers, Arcadia Ales have expanded and developed, earned GABF and World Beer Cup Medals, and in 2014 completed a major expansion in building and commissioning its new Kalamazoo Riverfront Brewery, Pub & Kitchen.

In addition to his role as Founder & President of Arcadia, Tim serves the Michigan Brewers Guild as the Co-Chair of the Government Affairs Committee, and sits on the Board of Directors of Cereal City Development Corporation (Kellogg Arena), Battle Creek Downtown Development Authority, and Southwest Michigan First.

Originally hailing from Upstate New York, Tim worked 5 years in law enforcement before a 10 year career in the pulp and paper industry that eventually led he and his family to Kalamazoo, Michigan.
