Elliott Hall - Owner
Elliott has been working in the Georgia Alcohol Industry for nearly a decade professionally (more if you count selling beer in college haha). During this time Elliott has been able to work in all 3 tiers of the alcohol system: From working with retailers in on and off-premise, to working for one of the biggest distributors in Georgia and spending a couple years helping found and manage a craft brewery. He is extremely grateful to be a part of this exciting industry and is most thankful for all the amazing people he has been able to work with so far. There’s not much separation between work and home life. If Elliott’s not working, then he and his wife can probably be found enjoying a local brewery, training for a race, or exploring Atlanta. This brewery is a long-term dream that he has been working toward for years and he is grateful to be able to share it with an amazing team.
Tyler Cox - Head Brewer
Nearly 20 years ago, young Tyler decided to spend his parents’ hard-earned money on a BA in English. “You can do anything with an English degree!” knowledgeable people repeatedly assured him. Thus, Tyler joined the ever-growing parade of wide-eyed, underqualified adults with liberal arts degrees. After a few years navigating the post-collegiate haze searching for the elusive “anything” that was promised so long ago, Tyler had a moment of clarity as he stared into a pint of freshly filtered Kölsch. Unfortunately, he promptly forgot whatever it was that had seemed so important and went back to drinking beer. Soon after, on a whim, he talked his way into a job as the assistant brewer at a local brewpub despite having the mechanical aptitude of a hogfish and lacking any experience brewing, at home or otherwise. Now, more than a decade later, Tyler’s ability to talk himself into or out of trouble while writing world-class cover letters led him to Fire Maker Brewing. He touts himself as proof that you actually *can* do anything with an English degree (but he doesn’t recommend it). Tyler promises to keep the James Joyce allusions to a minimum while blaspheming classic beer styles.
Rachel Bramer - Marketing Manager
Rachel is a Tampa native turned Atlanta local. You can find her behind the camera or at the computer, creating and overseeing content production for everything inside and outside the brewery. Rachel knows what it’s like to work with all things visual and social. She is the former Communications Manager for The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, where she managed the museum’s marketing efforts.
Bringing over a decade of experience in visual arts, she began her journey in film photography when she was just a teenager, then expanded into film-making years later. Her love for visual art grew into a passion for design in college. She is a graduate from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s in Communications, and an additional diploma in Visualization and Design. When she’s not in the office, she loves exploring all Atlanta has to offer with her dog Nova, and her camera. She enjoys hiking, cooking, sarcasm, and of course, craft beer!
