Christopher Tkach

Founder and Head Brewer, Idle Hands Craft Ales

Christopher Tkach, Founder and Head Brewer, found a good use of his idle hands as soon as he turned 21. Born and raised in the land of “Live Free or Die”, he received his first beer-making kit as a present from his uncle. From that day forward, he became not only a fan of beer, but a student of the craft of beer making. For over 15 years, Chris’ love and appreciation of beer inspired him to earn credentials as a Certified Beer Judge through the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP). Throughout his career, he has been active in local homebrew organizations including the Boston Wort Processors and has earned numerous awards at regional and national homebrew competitions.
