Fal Allen started brewing professionally in 1988 for Red Hook Brewery in Seattle, Washington. In 1990, he moved downtown to Pike Place Brewery where he was the head brewer for eight years. In 1999, he was awarded the Brewers Association’s Russell Schehrer Award for Innovation and Achievement in Craft Brewing. In 2000, he took over as the general manager at Anderson Valley Brewing Company (AVBC)  in Northern California. Starting in 2005 he did a  five year stint as brewmaster for Archipelago Brewing (a division of Asia Pacific Breweries) in Singapore, he returned to AVBC as Brewmaster in 2010. He has been a beer judge at the Great American Beer Festival for many years and has judged several times at the bi-annual World Beer Cup.

Fal’s writing credits include co-authoring Barley Wine (Brewers Publications, 1998), a four part series on Microbiology and lab work in Brewing Techniques and more than 40 articles in American Brewer, The New Brewer, Zymurgy, MBAA Technical Quarterly, Celebrator, Malt Advocate, and other publications.


Dick Cantwell is a pioneer of Seattle craft brewing. Since 1996 he has been head brewer at Elysian Brewing Company, which now has three pub locations and a production facility. His experience founding both brewpubs and a production brewery make him uniquely qualified to help you build the craft brewery of your dreams from the ground up. 

In addition to brewing, Cantwell has written for many beer publications, and in 1997 completed the Brewers Publications’ Classic Style Series edition Barley Wine with Fal Allen in addition to the second edition of The Brewers Association’s Guide to Starting Your Own Brewery (2013). Elysian was named Large Brewpub of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival® in 1999, 2003 and 2004, and in 2004 Cantwell also received the Russell Schehrer Award for innovation and excellence in brewing.
