Danny Wang

Danny earned his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Colorado State University in 2001. After years of providing therapy to computers abused by humans, Danny decided to pursue a career in craft beer. In 2011, CAUTION: Brewing Company opened as one of the first small craft breweries in Denver. As the craft brewing market changed, Danny decided to switch his focus to QA/QC and founded Fermly in 2018 with Emily. Danny is a Certified BJCP judge and an award winning brewer. He is an active member in the ASBC, MBAA, and the Colorado Brewers Guild. He has a weird love for capybaras. It’s bizarre.
