Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing’s owner, Jamie Queli, “finds it as a perfect fit. David started his young career, in 2005, as a bottling line worker in our space which was formerly occupied by Flying Fish. He now gets to return to the space, with a completely new vision, new equipment, and new identity with the highest title. I am beyond ecstatic as I truly believe that he has the skillset, knowledge, creativity, and drive needed for Forgotten Boardwalk to achieve its goals. He fits perfectly with our company values and integrity. I look forward to sharing Forgotten Boardwalk’s vision with him by having him design and develop some amazing beer on the 30 barrel system, and letting him getting downright weird and curious with the 1 barrel pilot system.”

David looks forward to joining Forgotten Boardwalk and to take the creative and curious approach needed. “I am honored to be asked to head Forgotten Boardwalk, it's a dream come true. I am excited for the freedom to experiment and make some great beers that showcase the passion and curiosity that were sparked during my first batch of homebrew."
