Forbes feature of Bellingham’s Jack Lamb, CEO Aslan Brewing

12 Sep


Forbes recently posted this article by Katherine Gustafson, featuring Aslan Brewing CEO Jack Lamb.  Full credit to them – enjoy.

How This Millennial Turned Down A Cushy Microsoft Job And Built A Hit Organic Brewery

When Jack Lamb was in third grade, his teacher asked the class to write down what they wanted to be when they grew up. “World’s youngest CEO,” Lamb wrote.

His mother still has the card in a box , and Lamb can’t help but marvel at how things turned out so much like he thought, and also how differently.

When Lamb graduated from Claremont McKenna College, his future seemed assured—and predictable. He had a job lined up doing marketing for Microsoft MSFT +0.32%’s Xbox team. Primed to move back to his native Seattle and take up a comfortable life in the Northwest tech bubble, he imagined himself finally living his dream of being like his dad.

“My whole life I just wanted to do what my dad did,” Lamb told me. His father worked for Accenture ACN +0.82%, but it wasn’t so much the consulting that captivated Lamb but the trappings of such a life: “He was in a nice suit in a nice car driving downtown every day.”

Out of the Box

But then Lamb visited Microsoft’s offices, and he immediately knew he was about to box himself into the wrong life.

“It’s a nice office but it’s still a cubicle zoo,” he said. “I couldn’t see myself sitting in a cubicle. It wasn’t for me.” Plus, he had snagged the job through a Claremont McKenna connection, which, he admitted, just “felt wrong. It felt like I didn’t earn this. I wanted to use talents and sweat equity to build something.”

So he quit the job…before ever starting it.

He had no alternate plan but was sure he wanted a different kind of life in a place less “off-putting” than Seattle. So he moved 90 miles up the road to Bellingham, a gentrifying former coal-and-lumber town a stone’s throw from the Canadian border, a liberal enclave with an emphasis on outdoor recreation and a relaxed lifestyle.

He found “a random writing job” and began casting about for the right entrepreneurial venture; he had always known he wanted to build his own business, but didn’t know what it should be. He wanted it to be focused on a craft—“something that consisted of someone’s design and art”—and initially entertained starting a winery or opening a bakery.

Then, in the summer of 2012, during a conversation with friends over beers in a local pub, the obvious solution hit him. The town’s beer scene was nascent but energized and the drinkers enthusiastic. Since 1995, Bellingham has been home to Boundary Bay Brewery, the godfather of craft Washington beer. Chuckanut Brewery opened in 2008 and immediately began winning international acclaim for its lagers. The third local craft brewery, Kulshan Brewing Co., opened in 2012 with hoppy, Northwest ales, just as Jack Lamb was getting settled into his new home.

“There were so many thirsty people and not enough beer,” said Lamb.

In Business

He and his future partners, Frank Trosset and Pat Haynes, started their pilot brewing effort in the basement of a parent’s house, and soon moved to a garage.

With the help of Frank’s brother Boe, who would later also join the business as a fourth owner, the team built their brewpub with their own hands in eight intense months in 2013 and 2014.

“We had to put in 80 hours a week of sweat equity to get this thing open and that’s exactly what we did,” says Lamb.

In May 2014, when they opened for business as Aslan Brewing Co., one of the Northwest’s first organic breweries, all four of the freshly minted owners were under 30 years old.

Lamb became CEO at age 23—just a decade or so shy of being the world’s youngest.

“It kinda happened,” Lamb said of that long-ago note about his future. “But it was different. It wasn’t the suit. I grew long hair. I went to bank meetings in shorts and flip-flops. I was very real and showed them that this is the kind of person who can make very good beer and design a community-centric business.”

And so he has. Aslan does booming business at its 15-barrel brew-house and restaurant, a true community hub that does twice-monthly fundraisers for local nonprofits and where kids are as welcome as beer snobs. Their beers have won numerous awards, including gold medals from the North American Brewers Association and Washington Beer Awards.

And since Aslan came along, the beer scene in Bellingham has blossomed: Now there are 10 breweries in town, and Lamb believes as many as 16 could easily survive there. It’s a great place to follow a beer-entrepreneur’s dream; after all, there’s not a cubicle in sight.

New this year is the “Washington Beer Run” a fun 5k (3.1 mile) run or walk around the park, which will take place on Sunday morning, June 19, at 10am. Finishers of the Beer Run will be admitted to the tasting festival at 11am, 30-minutes before the general public.

Registration for the Washington Beer Run includes a ticket for Sunday entry to the Brewers Festival, a run t-shirt, extra tasting token, bottle opener, and the early entry. Sign up now at

The Festival kicks off on Friday, June 17, from 4pm to 9:30pm, with nearly all of the breweries on hand. All 111 breweries will then be on-site pouring more than 450 locally brewed craft beers on Saturday from 11am to 9pm and Sunday from 11:30am to 5pm. More than 20,000 attendees are expected for this Father’s Day weekend celebration at the picturesque Marymoor Park venue. Although Washington Beer is definitely the star of the show, there will be great live music and a dozen notable local food trucks on site as well.
