Jay Bergantim

Jay Bergantim, Brewmaster

Born and raised in Southeastern, MA, Jay has been in the beer industry for 11 years (and drinking beer for longer!) Although Jay will tell you he’s not a fan of being in the spotlight, having two Gold Medal-winning beers from the Virginia Beer Cup under his belt is proof of his talent and passion for brewing. His favorite beer style is anything dry, crisp, and hoppy.

Ike Broaddus, Owner-operator

Ike is just as comfortable crunching numbers as he is playing in his classic rock band.  He is always looking forward, and makes sure we think about sustainability in all we do.

Kirk Heydt
Beertender & Chalk Artist

Kirk Heydt, Beertender & Chalk Artist

If you see lights on at OBH at 1am, it is most likely KIRK HEYDT putting up some new chalk art to inspire customers as they walk through the door—though his humble nature probably keeps most customers in the dark about this talent. Years home brewing with his family-in-law, Kirk’s beer knowledge is both studied and hands on. Almost 6 years beer tending at OBH, and a veteran of the OBH’s in-house two year BJCP training, Kirk’s experience, kindness, humility, and talent have earned him a place in the heart of OBH customers.

Beertender, Team Lead

John Fuller, Beertender, Team Lead

A 5+year veteran of the OBH beer tending team, and home brewer, John was voted one of the nicest people behind the bar by his peers. John is calm, cool, and never gets flustered—despite the fact that he has been managing the OBH taproom schedule for more than 5 years.  John loves sharing his passion for craft beer and gives interactive tours of the OBH production facility. “The joke in the taproom is that when I do tours they take forever…I guess I can tend to talk a lot…but…it’s not just me talking”. For John, customer service springs naturally from his love of craft.

Kevin Predmore, Beertender, Office Admin

KEVIN PREDMORE’s deadpan humor is not lost on OBH regulars.  But don’t let the kilt, pirate, or St. Patrick costume throw you off. In addition to completing the 2 year BJCP training at OBH, Kevin is a Cicerone Certified Beer Server, and gives a straight answer when it comes to anything beer-related.  #1 in devotion, Kevin has made the brewery his home since nearly OBH-day-one, and can always be found there—whether on or off the clock—making the customer experience and the OBH team as good as it can be. 


Dave Huff
Beertender, Team Lead

Dave Huff, Beertender, Team Lead

Coming up on 6 years serving customers at OBH, Dave is also member of one of Old Bust Head’s most popular bands, Offstarr, who perform every year at the Old Bust Head Anniversary in August. Hanging out with Dave is like hanging out with a chill Jimmy Buffet. From Dave’s perspective “OBH customers are just a nice group of people…You greet a customer with a smile, and a sincere ‘how are you doing today’ and people you’ve never met will always smile back and be ready to talk. It’s pretty awesome”.  Dave’s relaxing, chill vibe is contagious to his customers.

Beertender, Cash Accounting, Counting period.

Elizabeth Newton, Beertender, Cash Accounting, Counting period.

ELIZABETH NEWTON is a devoted craft beer fan and her beer knowledge is impressive. In addition to completing OBH’s two year long in-house BJCP training, Elizabeth attended 2015 GABF in Colorado with the OBH team, and spends much of her time off visiting other breweries near and far to broaden her perspective. The “Gold Standard” of customer service her favorite part of beer tending is listening to her customers tastes and matching them to beers they’ll enjoy.  She’ll surprise you too—Elizabeth makes a mean Septa Unella—dressing the part for her customers at OBH’s Game of Thrones Trivia night.

Colin Seltzer
Beertender, Team Lead

Colin Seltzer, Beertender, Team Lead

Our youngest and most sociable beer tender, Colin started at OBH bussing tables when he was just 16.  Now, more than 5 years later Colin is a favorite among people on both sides of the bar for his fantastic attitude, warmth, and willingness to do anything for anyone.  He is usually wearing short shorts (even in the winter) and has said he’d like to open his own short shorts company some day.  Colin also shares Old Bust Head’s friendly dedication to the environment and is constantly finding ways to reduce our impact on the planet.

Mark Towse
Draft Tech, Busser

Mark Towse, Draft Tech, Busser

In the 5+ years since Mark Towse began at Old Bust Head, he has beer tended, bussed, cleaned draft lines, and worked the package line.  In the taproom he prefers bussing to beer tending, not only because he understands the importance of keeping things spanking clean, but because he loves visiting with customers along the way. Devoted to customer service, Mark never fails to have a smile and spread his positive attitude to those around him. 


Pete Quell
Draft Tech, Busser

Pete Quell, Draft Tech, Busser

Pete prefers bussing to beer tending, but has been getting to know OBH customers for more than 5 years in one capacity or another.  He is OBH’s senior draft tech, works the packaging line, and still steps in to buss in the taproom when needed.  Customer service  along with service to community is #1 to Pete.  He’s been giving blood and platelets at INOVA for over 45 years and regularly volunteers for Dulles Airport honor flights, helping WWII vets see the memorial for the war in which they fought.
