Dry Dock Announces New Head Brewers


AURORA, CO — Dry Dock Brewing Company is pleased to announce new head brewers at each of its ​locations. Tim Evon is now at the helm of South Dock, Dry Dock’s original location on East Hampden​ ​Avenue, and Alan Simons is running the ship at North Dock, Dry Dock’s production brewhouse and facility​ ​on I-70 and Tower Road.

Tim Evon started homebrewing in Utah, where he worked at The Beer Nut homebrew supply shop in Sal​t ​Lake City before joining the brewing team at Bohemian Brewery. He received the Master Brewer​ ​Certification from the World Brewing Academy through Siebel Institute of Technology, and finally landed in​ ​Colorado as a brewer at Dry Dock in 2012. He took over South Dock’s brewing operations in March 2015.

Alan Simons also began his brewing career as a homebrewer and proudly purchased his supplies from​ ​The Brew Hut. He moved to Summit County in 2008 and started brewing professionally at Backcountry​ ​Brewery in Frisco. He became Backcountry’s head brewer eight months later, and worked there for seven​ ​years. During that time, Backcountry Brewery won a silver Great American Beer Festival® medal for its​ ​May Bock and another silver GABF® medal for its Saison du Summer (now called Imperial Saison).


Dry Dock Brewing Company was the first brewery in Aurora, Colorado that opened next door to its sister​ ​business, The Brew Hut, at 15120 E. Hampden Avenue in 2005. Dry Dock is now one of Colorado’s top​ ​producing breweries made possible by its second production facility North Dock, the closest Colorado​ ​craft brewery to the airport. Dry Dock will celebrate its 10th anniversary in October.
