From the start, Eddie Gobbo wanted to start a business where community was king, plain and simple. So when it was time to get Harmonic Brewing off the ground, Eddie enrolled in Food Craft Institute’s Business of Beer where he quickly become part of the blossoming Bay Area craft beer scene alongside new and veteran players alike. But becoming a full-time brewery owner was a long time in the making. Eddie grew up in a Croatian-American household where, thanks to homemade prosciuttos and cheeses being a staple, his passion for the process of making things was cemented early on. This led him to a career in chemical engineering, allowing him to truly see products from start to finish. As a chemical engineer, Eddie was not only able to see raw ingredients through to an end result, but he was also tasked with building the equipment from scratch. All these skills came into play for the long lead up to Harmonic Brewing’s summer 2015 opening. You can visit their taproom Thursdays through Sundays in the Dogpatch.
