Dan Kulick has over 18 years of brewing experience. He started homebrewing while attending the University of Pittsburgh. He is still true to his homebrew roots by being vice president of the A.L.C.Y (Ales and Lagers Carbonated by Yeast) Homebrew club.
Dan then honed his craft as a professional Brewer at Rock Bottom Pittsburgh under the watchful eye of Brewmaster Matthew Carroll. He was the assistant Brewer at Rock Bottom for over four years. Now he brings his experience to Gettysburg to spread his wings!
Dan’s favorite things to do outside of the Brewery is spending time trying products, hunting, watching NASCAR, and especially playing paintball as a member of the Whiskey Squad Paintball Team.
The brick farmhouse was completed around 1848 and the architecturally significant PA Dutch brick-end barn was completed the following year. Henry Monfort and his brother, Jacob, built the house and farmed the land. A family letter written on 8 July 1863, only 5 days after the battle of Gettysburg, documents events on the farm. As Johnson’s Division began to be evacuated from Culps Hill, the farm was converted into a Confederate Field Hospital. Over 1,300 Confederates were brought here, making it one of the largest Confederate Hospitals, with soldiers occupying the house, barn and considerable space around the farm. When the Confederates retreated from Gettysburg, 446 soldiers were left at the farm. They remained for about 28 days before consolidation at Camp Letterman (Hospital Hill). Forty-seven died and were buried on the farm, but were disinterred and moved to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond Virginia later. The families lost considerable livestock, crops, furniture, clothing, linens, etc. and were not compensated until the late 1880’s. The farm remained in the Monfort family until around 1921.
