The beer not only won’t drink itself, it won’t brew itself! Therefore, there is such a rare and exotic profession as a brewer – a specialist who combines the creative skills of an “artist of tastes” with an all-round expertise in the exact sciences. Nazar Stasiuk, Сhief Technologist of New Brew brewery, has told about his creative and responsible profession for the December issue of the specialized magazine “World of Products”.
Nazar completed his specialized education, became an employee of a well-known Ukrainian brewing company at the age of 18, and at the age of 20 he was already developing new flavours and recipes of beer in his position of junior technologist. Soon after, falling into a routine, the talented young man decided to take a break in his profession, and then he faced an adventure that defined the next steps of his life…
Currently Nazar is experiencing a special moment: since 2019 he is the chief technologist at a unique enterprise – a modern craft brewery, focused on popularizing quality beer among a wide audience of Ukrainians, so gives the young, but already experienced specialist a wide field for creativity to achieve this strategic goal. Nazar was at the origin of the new brainchild, so it is reasonable to say that a huge part of new products’ success belongs to him.
