Meet the Eddyline Crew!
Meet CEO, Brian England
Brian graduated from New Mexico Tech in 2003 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a minor in mathematics. While going to school Brian began working and managing Socorro Springs Brewing Company in New Mexico. In 2008, Brian was offered an opportunity with the new expansion project in Colorado at Eddyline Restaurant and Brewery.
Eddyline then opened its second location, Eddyline Taproom & Brewery, in 2011 with a much larger brewing facility and canning line. One of Brian’s fondest memories was loading up the back of the pick-up truck with Eddyline Crank Yanker IPA and driving to the nearest liquor stores to sell the first 6 pack of 16 ounce cans in the state!
In 2014, Brian completed a major accomplishment by becoming owner of Eddyline Restaurant @ South Main. Since taking over ownership, the restaurant has made major strides by implementing a loyalty program, removing 100% of artificial sweeteners by making all their sodas in house, and creating a winter music experience with great musicians for locals and visitors to enjoy during the off season.
With the recent expansion of Eddyline Taproom & Brewery, Brian was appointed CEO of all operations.
In addition, Brian is the former President of Guidestone, a local non-profit which is dedicated to the integrity of the agricultural resources of the Upper Arkansas River. Brian has also served on numerous committees in the local community including being a commissioner for the Buena Vista Planning and Zoning.
Brian and his wife Marcelle have 2 children, ACE (11) and Owen(9) and are proud to call Buena Vista, CO their home.
