Chris Balla

Beer Buyer

An Austin native and former jazz musician, Chris Balla is Grand Army's beer buyer/resident beer expert. Chris first tasted his first good beer at the age of 15 in Germany. Fifteen years, a stint at Bierkraft, and many casks later, Chris still loves kolsch and lots of other delicious, esoteric stuff that he curates at Grand Army. His approach to building a beer program is underscoring a mix of European sensibility with American ingenuity.
