Zed's Beer creates a high-quality, craft beer that is flavorful and complex, yet approachable.
Geoff Bado and his partner, Lori White, some 20 years later, are the proud founders of Zed’s Beer in Marlton, NJ. Their brewing/business philosophy is to create high-quality, craft beer that is flavorful and complex, yet approachable. In 2019, Bado won 5 medals for the beer brewed at Zed’s Beer, including a Gold Medal for Zed’s in Ireland–Dry Stout at the 2019 US Open Beer Championships. Bado also won medals for Zed’s in the Backyard–Copper Cream at the NY International.
An award-winning homebrewer, Bado is one of an estimated 6,500 Certified Judges by the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP). He judges entries at homebrew competitions like HomeBrewCon and would gladly judge the beer you’ve just brewed in your garage.
Bado is a member of the Barley Legal Homebrew Club and has designed more than 30 recipes in the last 20 years – many of them inspired by family roots and regional styles. He has taken his passion for beer, family and community and channeled it into creating every aspect of Zed’s Beer– from the recipes and process to the design and structure of his first brewery. He’s even built the bar and bench in the tasting room himself.
Lori has been Geoff’s co-conspirator for more than 20 years and was the original taste tester and guinea pig as he honed his brewing skills. A proud member of the Pink Boots Society®, which supports women professionals in the beer industry, Lori is an active collaborator in every aspect of Bado Brewing – as business partner, legal advisor, assistant brewer and (still) taste tester.
