Founder and CEO
In 2010, Chris put a stake in the ground and dedicated his firm to the craft brewing industry, with the foresight that niche expertise would be the way of the future. With that, Small Batch Standard was born and has been fullfilling that promise ever since.
"Chris’s breadth of knowledge in the beer industry helped improve ALL aspects of my business. I would give Chris my highest recommendation."
Chief Operating Officer
Tom is the architect behind the systems, the brand, and the team that make SBS run like a well-oiled machine. He’s the odd man out: a weird combination of engineer, marketer, and entrepreneur who snuck in the side door to hang out with the accountants.
Director of Accounting Operations
Equal parts accounting pro, team leader, and craft brewery founder, Phil is a unicorn combination of talents that fits like a glove with the ethos, mission, and culture here at SBS. In short: Phil has supercharged our firm’s capabilities.
Senior Brewery Accountant
Bridget is an expert practitioner and a wealth of knowledge for both clients and coworkers alike. She has always had passion for both beer and the books, so when she met with Chris over a beer in 2015, well… the rest is history.
"Bridget is a wizard in the back office and keeps our numbers straight as an arrow. Bonus, she even has a kegerator built into her kitchen!"
Senior Brewery Accountant, Tax ManagerOne of those rare souls who gets a rush out of an especially complex federal return, Ruchi is our accounting team’s tax powerhouse. She’s got an eye for the details even the most accomplished number crunchers often miss.
"Working with Ruchi at SBS has completely changed our back office. We're more organized, efficient, and effective."
After finding her way to SBS through a mutual friend at Bent Water Brewing, Allie has used her communication and organization superpowers to wow both clients and co-workers as an essential representative of what SBS accounting is all about.
"Allie has a tremendous eye for detail, and walks me through what's happening in our books. She has the heart of a teacher and that matters."
Brewery Accountant, Onboarding SpecialistAs a self-identified onboarder, accountant, and avid craft beer drinker, Derek’s speed, precision, and accounting skill set is matched only by his understanding and command of systems and technology. And both our team and our clients love him for it!
"Derek made the process as seamless as I think could ever be possible with his attention to detail and his effortless, quick responses."
Brewery Accountant, Tax SpecialistJulia is about as far from a one-dimensional bean counter as you can get. She has brought her creativity, dedication, and numbers skill set to our team and clients to great effect and exemplifies what it means to act as a trusted advisor.
Already an accomplished accountant in the manufacturing world and a beer insider, Abbie has the perfect mix of numbers competency, financial awareness, and process knowledge to expertly guide and consistently execute for our clients at the highest level.
