Our Team


Our team. The people you trust to craft and at times pour your beer. If you didn't know a little bit about us, well it just wouldn't feel quite right. Here we are...


Sam McKendree (aka Mr. SandMan, Sammy, Sambo, Sammy P)

Lead Brewer - Cedar Falls

Favorite Beer Style: All. Juicy IPAs were my favorite when I started drinking though. 

Where are we likely to find you if you aren’t at SingleSpeed?  At home playing video games or board games with the pre-fiance.

Hobbies: Drinking beer, playing video games with my brothers and friends, building my board game collection and I should probably pick up running again... 

If you aren't drinking a SingleSpeed beer, what beer are we likely to find in your hand? Kiss from a Gose or No Coast IPA from Peace Tree. Sierra Nevada Torpedo is the first craft beer I enjoyed, so I always come back to it.

Goals: Run a Beer Mile, make Zach run a beer mile and try to grow a beard as good as Chuck's or Jeremy's.

General Manager - Cedar Falls TapRoom

Favorite Beer Style: Sours and DIPAs

If you aren’t enjoying a SingleSpeed creation, what beer are we likely to find in your hand? I enjoy the brews at New Glarus Bering Company. My favorite being Serendipity. Otherwise, I am always trying beers I have never had before.

Best Beer Memory: My 21st birthday at Waterloo Singlespeed. That day, I learned very quickly why so many people enjoy craft beer. From foeder-aged stouts to the most tart sour, my palate discovered what delicious beer really tastes like.

Hobbies: Playing pool, throwing darts, long boarding, hiking, and camping. Oh, and drinking beer.

Bartender / Beer-Slinging Ginger

Favorite Beer Style: Brown Ale

If you aren’t enjoying a SingleSpeed creation, what beer are we likely to find in your hand?: Surly! 

Best Beer Memory: The look on Austin and Jeremy's  face when I first pitched my llama beer idea ;) I don't want no Drama.

For the record... I DO have a soul
