Our charismatic Taproom Manager at Tilted Mash Brewing. Embracing his new role since July 2016, Kyle arrived into the Tilted Mash Family with a flashy smile and a passion for beer. Kyle comes to Tilted Mash with a background as varied as those of its founders.
In 2002, Kyle accepted a position with UPS as a heavy equipment operator, and was promoted to graveyard supervisor in eight short months. Kyle's stay at UPS ended when he was given the opportunity to enter into the bio pharmaceutical field as an equipment and logistics specialist.
For the next decade he worked with global giants in the industry such as Genentech, Amgen and Boehringer-Ingelheim. Kyle became a jack of all trades, holding positions such as heavy equipment specialist, level 1 HazMat responder, hazardous shipment lead, international finished product shipper and warehouse manager over the course of his career.
In the Summer of 2012 , Kyle married his long time Party Buddy, and secret crush, Terryn Ormonde. Thus ending a nearly 18 year stretch of being in "the friend zone". With his new bride in tow, Kyle then did the unthinkable. He packed up his bags and left the shipping industry all together in order to pursue another dream--BEER!
Kyle embarked on his new endeavor as a food server and beer tender at a local Sacramento beer bar. Kyle quickly expanded his knowledge base and was promoted to Beer Buyer & Manager. During this short time he also acquired his Cicerone certification as a Beer Server.
Now at Tilted Mash, Kyle is excited to combine his love of both logistics and hand crafted beer. He is still excited to be the server that greets you and pours your pint, but also looking forward to meet the TMB warehousing needs as the brewery evolves and expands; and is looking to add Assistant Brewer to his extensive resume.
