World Class Brewmaster Henrik Braun Joins The PW Brewing Team

PRINCE GEORGE (August 21, 2015) – German-born brewmaster Henrik Braun, who has practised his craft from Germany to China, has joined the team at Pacific Western Brewing in Prince George.

Brewery owner Kazuko Komatsu announced the appointment of Braun saying:

“For the past 20 years Henrik has distinguished himself across the globe and we are pleased to welcome him to our dedicated brewing family in Prince George. Henrik shares our commitment to excellence and we are assured that his experience in Europe and Asia will help us to continue to offer new leading edge products.”

Braun says:

“I am very happy to have this opportunity to work with Pacific Western Brewery here in Prince George, and I would like to thank Ms. Komatsu for bringing me on board! We have a very experienced team here and a fine brewery to operate. I am sure we will have a great future making excellent beers together.”

Braun is a fifth generation brewmaster and received his Master’s Degree as an Engineer for Beer Brewing Technology at TU Berlin (Berlin’s Technical University) in 1996. Since that he has worked as a commissioning brewmaster and project engineer in Khon Kaen in Thailand, Shanghai and Jiangyin in China, Munich in Germany and Bludenz in Austria. He is married with an 11-year-old daughter.

PWB – brewer of Pacific Pilsner, Cariboo Genuine and other fine beers – installed a 10 hectolitre (HL) small batch pilot brewing system in 2013 that allows the brewery to develop new leading edge recipes and offer one-off beers and seasonal releases. The equipment complements PWB’s existing production system that is responsible for the brewery’s entire product lineup.
