Meet the Crew

It began with an idea…

As Portland locals and beer lovers, we believe beer should taste as it was brewed. Brothers Nick and Jake Klein founded Northwest Draft Technicians to help restaurants and bars throughout the Portland Metro area achieve just that. Since 2014, our team has grown to include others who are equally passionate about clean beer. We deal with the minutiae behind chemicals, cleaning schedules, tower designs, installations, and cooler organization so that you can continue to focus on making some damn fine beer.
