Central Standard Craft Distillery

Central Standard Craft Distillery Brian “Blaze” Blazel was born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He moved to Milwaukee in 2006 to pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering. While in Milwaukee, his passion for local craft food and drinks developed. One of the local craft products he was drawn to was Milwaukee Brewing Company beers. With persistence and a hefty amount of pestering, he was given the opportunity to work on the bottling line for MKE in early 2011. Blaze quickly worked his way up to brewer by the end of the year. It is his work ethic and openness to new challenges that led to the opportunity to become a professional distiller. An ever increasing interest in artisan food and drink along with his background in engineering and brewing, drives Blaze to stay true to spirit styles while innovating and putting his own flare into it. In his free time, he enjoys restoring and riding vintage mopeds, spending time with family and friends, and an occasional pour of whiskey.
