Joel Norman

Years of Participation

Joel Norman is our pyromaniac knife expert, and the head chef of the kitchen at Holy City Brewing. He’s from Parma, which is outside of Cleveland, and our restaurant is his legitimate brainchild. It also makes him a “Parma-san”, and that’s kind of funny! He likes to keep pub food exactly that, but he uses a simple, elegant and creative mindset on each of the dishes that come out of our kitchen, and chances are, if you ate one of the items off of his menu, you’re thinking about it right now if you read this. Joel is a chemist, so naturally, he loves to smoke meat and to light stuff on fire. Our kitchen is a perfect place for him. He likes hopped-up ales and sours, in case your Holy City Burger was so damned tasty that you want to buy the kitchen a sixer.
