Have you met Marshall?
Eric Marshall a fourth generation Tulsan with a degree in International Business and German language from the University of Tulsa. Eric left Tulsa in 2004 to study the art of brewing in Munich, Germany where he was awarded the prestigious International Diploma in Brewing Technology from the World Brewing Academy. He apprenticed in multiple breweries throughout Germany and served as a brewer at the Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.
In 2007, Eric returned to Tulsa to begin laying the groundwork for his own brewery. Marshall Brewing Company, Tulsa’s first production craft microbrewery, which began operations in spring 2008. Marshall Brewing Company focuses on brewing full strength, hand crafted, top quality ales and lagers. Its business is based upon creating fine products with basic inputs – old-world knowledge and experience, high quality raw materials and good old-fashioned hard work. Marshall Brewing Company’s goal is to bring the art, quality, and enjoyment of craft brewing to Oklahoma.
Sales & Other Fun Things
The oldest member of the team or “The Godfather” as he is commonly referred to around the brewery, Wes is a self-proclaimed refugee from selling things less important than beer. As a native Tulsan, Wes’ connection to the Marshall family runs back decades. His love of craft beer, however, is more recent. Introduced to craft beer by the Marshall family in the early 2000’s, Wes has since developed a passion for spreading craft beer and the culture it brings. Need advice on pairing food and beer? Wes is our resident expert and hobby chef.
Tim has been working at Marshall Brewing since it was a mere concept. After volunteering to help friend Eric during startup, Tim was brought on in January of 2009 as the first brewhouse employee. Even though Tim currently juggles tasks such as equipment maintenance, quality assurance, research & development, and brewery expansion, he is firmly grounded in the art of sweeping, keg cleaning and general brewing assistance. Nothing makes Tim happier than the smell of freshly mashed McNellie’s Pub Ale or freshly bottled Old Pavilion Pilsner. Tim is lucky enough to pursue two passions as he also works for the Tulsa Fire Department.
The embodiment of “Country” at the brewery, Taylor grew up ‘round the back roads of Tulsa. After a failed music career Taylor made the move to craft beer, where he reunited with former bandmate Eric Marshall. With a reunion out of the question, Taylor began his brewing career with Marshall Brewing in October of 2009. The brewhouse is often filled with the sounds of Taylor’s inspirational playlists, from Disney to Devin, there is no shortage of good vibes…which translate to great beer!
