She started as a beertender on Intuition’s opening day and has been hooked on the industry ever since. You can find her handling day-to-day operations and shenanigans.

Director of Brewery Operations
Andrew’s first forays into brewing were as a home brewer. He brewed his first batch of beer just before heading off to college at Florida State University, where he earned his master’s degree in social work. Shortly thereafter, he embarked on a lengthy road trip, where he immersed himself in craft beer culture. He landed in Atlanta, where he acquired a position as assistant brewer at a busy brew pub in the growing Atlanta beer scene. Three years later, he set his sights on returning to Florida just as Intuition Ale Works was launching.
He brews for the love of the craft and the satisfaction of seeing IAW patrons partake in one of civilization’s oldest rituals – relaxing and socializing over beer.
Andrew enjoys nature, reading, cooking, and relaxing with the hi-fi.
Director of Sales
Daniel worked in the wine and spirits industry in both distribution and retail for a decade prior to joining Intuition Ale Works. He has traveled around the world in the pursuit of developing and perfecting his palate. Daniel’s favorite part of the job is helping new consumers of craft find a beer that they like.
Daniel is a fun-loving, incredibly competitive personality who grew up in Gainesville, Florida. Daniel is a proud father of a daughter who inherited his competitive nature, competing in USAG gymnastics and a national dance team in Jacksonville.

A Mississippi native, Keith always felt the warm pull of the state of Florida, and is proud to head up the laboratory and advanced scientific studies program at Intuition.
A plumber by former trade, he is always up for nitty gritty details that make the brewery purr. He specializes in hands-on work and performing complicated maneuvers in the lab.
Affectionately known as The Pontchartrain Playboy, he enjoys long walks on the beach, caring for small animals, and getting caught in the rain.
He also applies his art to an exceptional jambalaya. It’s all about the right ingredients, a gentle hand, and knowing when to add a touch of spice.
Matt has been brewing Intuition beer since 2012, when he decided to trade being a regular barfly for being a regular bad ass.
In addition to being the resident curmudgeon, he also manages inventory and maintains a soft spot for Gizmo, the brewery cat.
