Sitting at the Bar

Jim Mack

Founding Partner and Professional Skier (he really should be) 

Jim hails from the heartland of the Midwest, growing up on a farm in Camp Douglas Wisconsin – moving to the big city of Madison at the age of twelve. Seeing that a career as a Denver Nugget was not in the cards, Jim became one of the founders of Tiorco and eventually the president of the company, which is also where he met Rob and was introduced to craft beer. Jim remains impressed with the craft beer industry, the innovation, the surprising twists and turns as well as humbled by the acceptance in the community of not only Grist but also other new and growing breweries. Being involved in Grist keeps Jim busy as he splits his time between Breckenridge and Denver – enjoying all that “retirement” in Colorado has to offer.
