Our People - Boise Brewing



Collin Rudeen


Collin is pretty sure he had hobbies before starting a brewery and having children. They might have been things like backpacking and running but he can’t remember for sure. He now enjoys doing the accounting and changing diapers.

Lance Chavez

Head Brewer

I started my career in the craft brewing industry in February 2006 as an assistant brewer at Sockeye Brewing and have never looked back. Most of my time away from the brewery is happily concentrated on my family and raising my two boys. Traveling, making music and spending time in the mountains of Idaho and Wyoming are some of my other passions.


Lynlee Garside


My name is Lynlee. I’ve worked at Boise Brewing for six years. You can catch me on the brewfloor or bellied up to the bar. Because I like beer. 🙂


Ethan Freer

Hey my name is Ethan! I Grew up on a farm town in Mountain Home, moved to Boise in May of 2022 and started working at Boise Brewing shortly after. I love playing music and being in the outdoors.

Triton Rimkus

Restaurant Manager
Meet Triton! Our new restaurant manager!
He is in a seasonal relationship with Hymenoptera.
When he’s not observing bugs trailside in the woods, he has his on snowshoes or throwing 44lbs of stone-cold love across the ice and he plays a mean cribbage board.
He has spent over three decades in service and hospitality and has learned that it’s the connections with people that make the place and he will gladly hear your stories and share a few of his.

Jason Stotts

Loving Friend!

Oregon born and Idaho raised, I’m a student at Boise State and I love helping people find their new favorite beer! If I’m not studying or working, you can find me up in the mountains. From white water rafting to mountain biking in Southern Idaho, I’ve done it all! My favorite beer is the Red Velvet.


Jeremy See

Senior Bartender

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. Most recently, I lived in Alaska for six years before moving to Boise in 2020. I love anything to do with the outdoors. You can usually find me in the mountains or traveling to find my next adventure when I’m not working.



HR and Senior Bartender

You’d think that with my gorgeous marbled coat and white socks I would have some pretty good self-esteem.  But oh my gosh, I’m so scared right now!  All I really want is a quiet place to de-stress and someone to love me. I will show my affection for you with adorable little head butts.

Allison Kellogg


I’ve worked in the accounting field for over 15 years and have been at Boise Brewing for a year and a half.  I enjoy running, softball and spending time with my husband, son, and new puppy.  My favorite beer is Snowboarder Porter.
