Rich is a Managing Partner at Brocach and focuses his boundless energy towards leading our ever evolving drinks program.  Our eclectic (yet approachable) draft beer lineup, expansive selection of whiskies and proprietary specialty cocktails have been sourced, selected and created by Rich to give our guests a fun and memorable experience.  Ask for Rich the next time you visit Brocach Irish Pub & Whiskey Den on the Capitol Square - he will be happy to share what he's working on in the laboratory.  If you like good beer or classic cocktails with a creative nod toward Irish whiskey, you're going to enjoy a drink at Brocach. 

A native of Quincy, MA and a graduate of The University of New Hampshire, Rich enjoys arm-wrestling, LARP and performing at weddings and quinceaneras as DJ Calzone.  You may have spotted him walking his pet Badger, Mark Wahlberg, in the UW Arboretum

"We're a bar for grownups but we don't take ourselves too seriously.  You're going to get a great cocktail at Brocach but we're not going to make a fifteen minute process out of it.  You're going to find a great selection of craft beers on tap here but we will always be about the perfect pint of Guinness.  If you like whiskey, I'd love to meet you."
