Tim Alexander is no stranger to beer. He oversees operations technology at Deschutes Brewery, which includes process automation, operational interactions and integrations with the company ERP system, databases for collecting/organizing/storing quality and recipe data, and creating reports and combining data as required from all of these systems. According to Alexander, the position didn't even exist until January of 2018.
