Dwight grew up in Fort Collins and has raised his family here. He started at CooperSmith’s during construction in 1989. He helped get the kitchen open and then moved into the brewery. Starting out washing kegs and tanks, his skills grew and in 1995 he took over as head brewer. In 2014 Dwight along with managers Sandra Longton and Chris O’mara bought out the founders of the company. He is now president and is primarily focused on running the business but still loves to brew when Chris and Zach will let him.
