About the Speakers

Ashleigh Carter

Ashleigh Carter, Co-Owner & Head Brewer

Bierstadt Lagerhaus

Ashleigh Carter is one of the owners and head brewer at Bierstadt Lagerhaus in Denver, Colorado, which opened in 2016. In her more than a decade-long career she has gone from a homebrew shop where she packaged specialty malt and hops, to an assistant brewer at Dry Dock Brewing (Aurora, Colo.), to the lead brewer at Prost Brewing (Denver, Colo.), and is now in charge of everything beer at Bierstadt. Her vision of a three malt, two hop, one yeast brewery, replete with horizontal lager tanks and a hard-to-find-outside-of-Bavaria flotation tank is firmly rooted in traditional techniques and patience.
