Meet the Woodstock Staff: Daniel

Daniel Moody, cellarman


Daniel, who’s from North Conway, spent two years traveling the US in his van before moving to Plymouth. Soon, he met Brewer Frank Heidenreich and the staff at The Woodstock Brewery and the rest, as they say, is history.

As part of his job as cellarman, Daniel takes the finished fermented beer and transfers it to be conditioned, filtered and carbonated; and he managed 14 taps, ensuring the beer is always flowing! Based on what he’s learned at the brewery, he created our new, brewery-only Cascade Park IPA.

You might see Daniel, who has also been a home brewer since 2013, on a tour of the brewery.

“My favorite part about brew tours is bringing people together and educating groups of strangers with enthusiasm and an engaging presentation, he says. “The prize at the end is seeing how we all connect and sharing stories by the end of the tour.”

Favorite Beer: Nitro stout and Falling Waters Double IPA

Favorite Beer/Food Pairing: Stout with French onion soup. Double IPA really compliments grilled chicken Caesar salad, he says.

When he’s not brewing, Daniel, 28, skis Loon and Cannon mountains, cross-country skis, and mountain bikes. He has two dogs – a husky and northwest farm terrier.

How to Taste Beer Like the Pros

Have you ever watched someone at a wine tasting? They stick their nose in the glass, put the glass up to the light, swirl the wine, taste, roll the wine around in their mouth, then proclaim it perfect or not. We’d like to tell you tasting beer – truly tasting beer – is a much shorter, less elaborate process, but it’s not. And that’s not a bad thing: Taking the time to experience and savor a craft brew is quite satisfying – and it will make you appreciate what you’re drinking so much more. As with wine, you can’t take a swig of beer and make an informed decision on it other to say “yea” or “nay,” especially if you’re tasting a fine, hand-crafted beer, carefully brewed, with subtle flavors. In that case, here’s how to taste beer properly (and impress your friends in the process):
