Mark Nixon

After beginning home brewing in 2011 Mark Nixon developed an all-consuming thirst for beer knowledge. Unemployment shortly after led to Mark focusing on brewing as a new career path and after successfully completing IBD exams in 2012 he moved to the UK to gain some valuable brewing experience at Oxfordshire Ales and then East London Brewing. Mark moved back to Ireland in early 2014 to assume the role of Head Brewer at Trouble Brewing based in County Kildare. Mark currently serves as Vice President of brewer association Beer Ireland, which he helped establish in 2012.
