Meet the Brewer


Our Brewer, Sam Pagano, has been on since February 2018.  He grew up in Colonie, NY, where afterwords he went onto receive his Bachelors Degree in English while playing Football for the University at Albany.  After a brief stint coaching college football, he decided beer is where he belonged!   He began his career at Browns Brewing Co. in 2008.  Afterwords, he was the Assistant Brewer here at C.H. Evans for a couple years!  From there, he moved on to be the Head Brewer at Mad Jack Brewing Co. in Schenectady, NY.  Most recently, Sam moved back home from Hartford, CT where he was the Head Brewer for City Steam Brewery.  We’re excited for Sam’s beers and you should be, too!  Keep your eyes peeled for his latest creations and be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the up-to-date progressions on all things C.H. Evans and Albany Pump Station!
