From a young age PJ has always had an entrepreneurial spirit.
At the age of 16 he started a DJ service which he grew to include concert and nightclub promotion and opened two of his own night clubs all before the age of 25.
For the past 22 years he has continued to be a leader in some of Calgary’s most exciting food and entertainment venues.
PJ’s passion for craft beer goes back to his first attempts at home brewing when he was 18 years old.
He quickly found out that brewing beer wasn’t for him but that serving it was.
Through his travels and relationships with brewers across the globe, PJ realized that a concept like CRAFT Beer Market could truly change the way people think about restaurants.
His passion for the craft beer movement and community is evident in everything he does.
He loves the small business model and the ability to have a positive impact in the communities where he opens his restaurants.
PJ’s family values and belief in community involvement run deep through the entire CRAFT concept and he would have it no other way.
The biggest excitement he gets about opening in new markets is getting to know the local breweries and farms that he can partner and connect with in the community.
