I've been on a few brewery tours and Colin was by far the most knowledgable guide i've ever had. My buddy and i were blown away by the amount of information Colin knew about not only the brewing process but the history as well. He's a brewmaster in our books. I have a new appreciation for Big Rock beer now.
