A few Jersey Boys on a journey to start their own brewery in Jersey City.

Starting with a 3 gallon pot and a home brewing kit, the idea of 902 Brewing Company fermented into a business in August of 2012.   Originally brew-stablished in Hoboken, NJ, 902 pays tribute to the apartment where they took it to the next level.  

From that tiny apartment, 902 has gypsy brewed their way to a much larger warehouse in Jersey City, with a full build out in process.  Follow the journey on our twitter!

The Team


Colby Janisch, COO

Colby got into brewing around Christmas time of 2007.  He received a 'Mr Beer' Homebrew kit as a present and was hooked right away.  As a mechanical engineer, he quickly spiraled out of control with new equipment mods, process improvement, and experimenting.  Here at 902 he continues that daily!  Colby is a huge Giants fan, Delaware alumni, and proud dad.



Don Vogt, CFO

Don brings 15+ years of finance and accounting experience to 902.  In addition to overseeing sales, you'll find him at events pouring beers.  Don is a WVU Mountaineer and a huge Giants fan.



John "Ham" Russo, Operations Manager

John “Ham” Russo, who has been with the company for a few years, recently came on as their full time Operations Manager.  When he’s not out on the rugby field moving scrums, you’ll see him all over the place moving delicious liquid!



Allie Gunn, Sales & Events Manager 

Allie, a proud Virginia Tech Hokie, brings a wealth of craft beer knowledge from pouring at tap rooms, to hosting events, to learning how to brew.  Welcome, Allie! For inquiries, you can reach her at allie.gunn@902brewing.com.
