Billy McDivitt

Open Door Brewing
COO/Chief Reality Officer
Longmont, CO

Like you, Billy had many dreams as a kid; ranging from traveling to Mars to running a bar like Sam Malone in Cheers.  Bi-polarly educated at both the University of Colorado (Architecture) and Colorado State University (Construction Management), he has over 20 years of experience in project and construction management.  While he still hasn’t quite made it to Mars, his 22+ months ‘on ice’ working in the United States Antarctic Program led him to a ‘chilling’ conclusion; it was time to chase that childhood dream of being Sam.

Starting in 2010, the arduous task of putting a new craft brewery together began as a second full-time job.  In 2015, beer became more than just a hobby as the first three production brews hit the metro Denver market.  In early 2016 it became his primary fulltime job as the company COO; and the first chapter culminated with the opening of Open Door Brewing Company’s first taproom in early 2017.

As Chief Reality Officer, Billy uses his management skills, wide array of work experience, and neighborly charisma to continue to build a one-of-a-kind company focused on beers as approachable as he is.  Nothing brings him greater joy then for Billy to share a brew and tell you one of his infamous stories.  Random, passionate, and genuinely interested in who you are and how he might help you, he looks forward to making each new acquaintance, whether it be a pint or a person!
