She plans to concentrate on English style ales, which offer a wide spectrum for the palate.
For example, West Coast style ales trace their linage to English ales, said Ryan Heastings. The West Coast style ales have a hoppier taste than the traditional English ales, Heastings said.
Heastings, who is currently an employee at Pies & Pints, orders the beer and wine for the popular downtown pizzeria. He will be brewing beer for Saville when the brewery opens.
Heastings, 29, of Teays Valley, whose unofficial title at Pies & Pints is beer czar, has been making beer for about eight and a half years. He also volunteers his time at Bridge Brew Works in Fayetteville.
"We're going to be making a ton of different beers," he said. "That's the fun of it."
"We'll be doing things to capture the best of the classical brewing regions of the world," he added.
Saville said she was very pleased to have Heastings on board. Not only is he experienced at brewing beer, but he is also a hands-on people person who will be working the bar, she said.
"He has a lot of experience," Saville said. "And I really like his enthusiasm, his attitude and his people skills."
"He's just superb," she added.
Heastings will not be the only ones with his hands in the barley. Another of Saville's sons, David Saville, will also be assisting.
David Saville is a retired petroleum engineer who is familiar with the science associated with brewing beer. He has also been taking classes on brewing, Saville said.
Although he will be helping brew the beer, David Saville's main responsibility will be running the brewpub and restaurant, she said.
A world-renowned brewing expert, Dr. Paul Farnsworth, will also be a consulting brewer at Charleston Brewing Company, Saville said.
Farnsworth, an Englishman now living in Florida, has written textbooks on brewing beer. He also teaches the science of brewing and fermentation.
