Forgotten Boardwalk announces hiring of brewer

Written by 

Forgotten BoardwalkDavid Bronstein, a brewer for Sly Fox who got his start in craft beer on Flying Fish’s bottling line, has been named head brewer for startup Forgotten Boardwalk in Cherry Hill.

Owner Jamie Queli announced the hiring on Wednesday. 

“David started his young career in 2005 as a bottling line worker in our space, which was formerly occupied by Flying Fish,” Jamie says. “He now gets to return to the space with a completely new vision, new equipment and new identity with the highest title.”

David is expected to start the third week of April. He spent more than seven years at Sly Fox Brewing in Pennsylvania, the last four years as lead brewer. He was part of the brewing team that won five Great American Beer Festival medals, including two gold and two silver. At Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing, he and a yet-to-be-hired assistant will work on a 30-barrel brewhouse. 

“I am excited for the freedom to experiment and make some great beers that showcase the passion and curiosity that were sparked during my first batch of homebrew,” David says.

Last summer Forgotten Boardwalk leased the Olney Avenue business park unit in Cherry Hill where Flying Fish Brewing launched in 1996 and operated until moving to Somerdale in 2012.

FB-KeyForgotten Boardwalk is still in its buildout phase; brewery equipment is due toward the end of the month. The grain silo, gycol unit and coldbox are in. Wednesday’s announcement of a brewer projected a May opening for the brewery.
