Doug Petteys makes the jump from Member-Owner to Board member with a heightened passion for both this co-op and great beer. His love for distinct beer started when Guinness was one of few alternatives to the usual lager. Watching the first craft beer boom of the 1990s from his metro Detroit home made him a lifelong devotee and he now calls Beer City USA home. Doug plans to put his BA in journalism to good use presenting the unique High Five Co-op approach of hometown home-brew to an expanding fan base. Currently the cad/Revit manager of a local engineering firm, Doug is very accustomed to juggling deadlines while maintaining accuracy, two attributes that will fit in well with the Board of Directors.
