Mike Varley


Mike was one of our esteemed original “Gristers.” He’s, well, promiscuous…about breweries that is, which is great for all of us at Grist because we learn from his travels all over the state with his wife and friends sampling new brews. Mike likes the finer things in life and while dogs and cats are nice domestic animals, he’d rather have a mongoose as a pet. Mainly because they eat snakes and Mike has an Indiana Jones thing going on, “I hate snakes.” If you didn’t gather from the picture, Mike is a homebrewer and loves his “Flight of the Falcon” Falconer’s Flight IPA. If he’s not working or brewing hopefully he’s playing hockey.
