The Brewmaster leading this alphabetical tour de beer is Christopher Tourre. Here's what AlphaBeer posted:

Christopher Tourre is an artist, educator, self-proclaimed "social aggregator", and of course, beer lover and brewer. Born and raised in the countryside of Western Pennsylvania, Tourre earned a BFA in Sculpture from the Pennsylvania State University in 2005 and an MFA in Studio Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2009. Tourre's art projects have engaged communities from raising chickens in the Chicago neighborhood of Pilsen to building furniture with torn down houses at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago). In 2010, Tourre began a new project titled Public Brewery. The project's goal was to entwine communities, stories, personal narratives, and education through the creation and distribution of beer and soda-making. After brewing great beers for (and with) the public for over a year, Tourre decided he wanted to take the spirit of the project into the craft beer industry. In 2011, Tourre founded Arcade Brewery with friend and director of, Lance Curran. The two are dedicated to make Arcade Brewery fun, and sincerely socially engaging. Arcade Brewery plans to be operational in the fall of 2012.
