Brew Crew

Dave Fougeron

Dave was born and raised in Houston, Texas amongst heat, humidity and plenty of mosquitoes.  He encountered his first homebrew one dark and stormy night in 1989, and the seeds of intrigue were planted.  Dave began home brewing in 1993 in College Station, Texas while attending Texas A&M University winning several medals in local home brew competitions.  After graduation Dave took his first “real” job in 1997 as an assistant brewer at the renowned Saint Arnold Brewing Company, eventually becoming the head brewer in 2001. Six years later, he left to form Southern Star Brewing.

Dave is heavily influenced by the brewing styles and traditions of England and Germany, although has been know to enjoy an IPA or two.  He also likes to read literature, go fishing, and take long, romantic walks on the beach.
