More about Jeff:  Jeff’s brewing career began as many others; he loved beer and really enjoyed home brewing. As he was not satisfied at his job, he decided to leave for brew school. It was there that Jeff made friends with the current owners of GoodLife Brewing in Bend, Oregon. “They were nice enough to let me intern there for four months before I left. It was greatly needed for as they were starting to get really busy.”

Jeff Schauland attended brew school at the Siebel Institute in Chicago. There he went through a very intensive program that covered everything from malting to fermentation to the building of brewhouses. Upon graduation, Jeff went on to study at the Doemen’s Academy in Munich, Germany. There he studied under the Brewmaster of Uerige an amazing Alt brewery in Dusseldorf, Germany. This course was much more hands. Brewing, packaging, and lab work were the main focus. Following this, his class was taken to breweries throughout Germany, Austria, and Czech Republic so that they could experience how large operations work.

Upon graduation from Doemen’s, Jeff was fortunate enough to start working at GoodLife Brewing in Bend, Oregon. There he served as the Lead Brewer for about 2 1⁄2 years, which was excellent experience because he was around through a period of extremely rapid growth. He got a great deal of experience in production, ordering, shipping and receiving, bottling and canning, as well as brewery expansion. The skills that Jeff has learned at Goodlife Brewing will apply well to continue and expand the legacy of Silver Moon Brewing in Bend.
