Head Distiller and Director of Operations at Cedar Ridge

Murphy grew up in the business with his parents opening Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery while he was still a kid. His path to becoming the head distiller and director of operations for the company didn’t just have him working at the family distillery, though. He also spent some time at Stranahan’s Distillery in Denver before returning to the family business in Swisher, Iowa. Since then he has held many roles until he ultimately took over as the head distiller and is leading the future of whiskey at the Cedar Ridge Distillery.

Murphy is thrilled to share the story of Cedar Ridge with our BeerStyles guests soon!
