Jeff Bray

Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, Jeff moved to West Virginia in the mid-90’s to attend college and has been visiting and living in the Lewisburg area ever since. While wearing many hats professionally, he is excited to be joining the craft beer world. His past work has included being a professional stage manager as well as a geologist. Travel enlightened him to help develop I-Treks, a smartphone application providing custom tours around West Virginia and soon to select locations out of state. As a caver, outdoor enthusiast and traveler, an appreciation for good beer after a long day of exploration makes him a perfect fit to the Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company’s motto, “Get out. Explore. Bring Beer.”
