Meet Joe Poliseno. Joe has been brewing since 2001. As the Brewing Manager, Joe has helped lead a diverse team that has won countless medals and has been awarded Mid-Sized Brewery of the Year at the World Beer Cup. Joe was also an inspiration for Deerslayer as he wanted to help develop an everyday beer that could easily be enjoyed outside with friends after hunting or fishing. 

Joe has a rich history and passion for the grounds of Central NY as an avid hunter/marksman and fisherman. Joe’s love for the outdoors has inspired him to educate and share the outdoor experience with his three sons. Joe has shared the moments of hunting small game with his children and will soon be sharing big game hunting with his oldest.  Joe volunteers his time outside of work with the local youth soccer and baseball programs. Joe’s Pro Tip is to take the time to educate and support the younger generation with environmental conservation laws and regulations so that we can continue to enjoy the great outdoors.

Congratulations to Joe for being our first Deerslayer Original
