As a photographer, landscape painter, custom tiler, videographer, music-festival organizer and now, professional beer brewer, Dalen Landis is not kidding when he says “I have my fingers in a few different pots.”
This morning his fingers are busy filling kegs with fresh Redwillow Falls Amber Ale. A co-owner of Grain Bin Brewing, Landis has also been the company’s full-time operator since the microbrewery launched in February.
Landis, 29, grew up in Wembley, AB. Out of high school, he started his post-secondary education with a year at Peace River Bible Institute. Then he enrolled at GPRC to take business administration.
“My dad is a local businessman so I thought I’d give it a try,” Landis says, “I enjoyed it but it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do.”
He looked around GPRC and decided to add a few fine arts courses to his schedule. Landis was moonlighting as a wedding photographer and felt furthering his fine arts education might enhance his craft.
