In the words of the brewer:

"I'm a South Dakota native who has lived in Denver for 12 years. When I moved to Denver I quickly learned I was surrounded by beer and couldn't help but fall in love with the immense selection and quality Colorado has to offer. For the past decade I've worked in alcohol licensing helping restaurants navigate through paperwork and regulatory agencies in effort to legally serve alcohol to the public. This involvement in the industry and my love of beer led me to the idea that it’s time to start learning how to brew beer. Luckily, Factotum opened just a few blocks from my house in Sunnyside and I learned that brewers of any skill level can work with Chris and his team to create innovative beverages. When not working with alcohol in some manner I teach, write, and sometimes perform music. Maybe I'll even get to play a set at Factotum some day!

I'm a fan of all styles of beer but my favorites are IPAs. I thought it would be interesting to brew an IPA with traditional English hops and malts but have a slightly higher ABV than one would typically see. The name “Gentleman Johnny's English IPA” was suggested to me by my brother-in-law who is a descendant of John Burgoyne, an English general during the Revolutionary War. Burgoyne is mostly known for surrendering a large army of British troops and leaving them behind while he promptly "hopped" on the first boat back to London. 'Gentleman Johnny,' as he was known, was an infamous coward. I'm a pretty big wimp myself so I thought this was a fitting name for my brew."
