    Dustin Norlund
    Owner - Founder

    Dustin has been a craft beer lover since college where he built a microbrewery as part of his senior engineering design projects. With an engineering and aviation background craft beer was an obvious evolutionary step. Dustin has been an avid sailor, built an airplane from scratch, and had the opportunity to drink beers in more than thirty countries around the world.

    "First, there was beer. Soon, there will be spirits. Beyond this, who knows what I'll want to drink."

    Jeff Woodworth
    Head Brewer

    Jeff grew up in Huntsville, Ontario but always an adventurous spirit, he left early to travel the world. As he discovered new places and their beers, he had little idea what an impact it would have on his need for a fresh pint once he came home.

    After returning, he was immediately drawn into the blossoming craft beer scene and enrolled in the Niagara College Brewmaster Program. After graduation, Jeff worked for a number of breweries before settling at Barnstormer, where enjoys the freedom to incorporate his diverse history into each and every batch.

    carolann Our Team

    Carolann Companion AKA MoneyPenny
    Shady Accountant

    Carolann has been with the company since the beginning, handling our books and making sure everyone else in the Flight Crew receives their wages in a timely manner. She is easily the most likeable member of the team and with a smile like that, can turn a bad day into a great one just by showing up to the office. Carolann also runs this town, so don't be fooled by that sweetness. People have been known to disappear around here.
