There’s a Mad Beer Scientist in that LAB Brewing Company!

There are a limited amount of craft beer lovers that get the chance to ditch their 9 to 5 to fulfill their dream of opening their own brewery.  Owner Roger Bott of LAB Brewing Company in Agoura Hills, CA not only was privileged enough to scratch this accomplishment off his bucket list, but he was also fortunate to use the skills gained from his previous employment to better his dream.  Roger worked for 14 years at mega-biopharmaceutical company Amgen which creates products that help people with serious illnesses.
