Broken Bow Brewery

To say Broken Bow Brewery is a “family affair” is an understatement. The LaMothe family has created a winning formula at Broken Bow Brewery in Tuckahoe. Launched in 2013 by all 5 family members, Broken Bow has become the beer of choice for thousands of craft beer aficionados. Even the name Broken Bow has a familial meaning…it’s the small town in Nebraska where Kasey’s mom grew up.
Broken Bow’s team includes her dad, Lyle who is in charge of sales, her older sister Kristen, who is the event and marketing guru, her mom, Kathy, who is head of HR, does accounting & generally keeps the place running smoothly, her brother Mike, the head brewer, and Kasey, who is head of quality control and a brewer.
When Kasey was studying at Carnegie Mellon, earning a B.S. in Biological Sciences, a minor in Biomedical Engineering, and a concentration in Neuroscience, she was still deciding on her career path. By the time she graduated in 2013, the family hobby of brewing beer was turning into a business. Each family member had a specific role to fill, and Kasey’s science background landed her perfectly into quality control.
Kasey takes her role in the brewery very seriously. Not long after Broken Bow opened, Kasey attended the World Brewing Academy/Siebel Institute in Chicago, earning an associate degree in Advanced Brewing. Kasey is also a Certified Beer Server, the first of four levels of certification to become an Advanced Cicerone, which in the beer world is equivalent to a wine sommelier.
Tonight we will be able to tour Broken Bow’s facilities and will hear some of the ins and out of craft brewing. Of course, sampling of various beers will be done (please 21+ only).
