About Us

What We Do

After over a year and a half of recipe development, commercial production of our beers began in January 2013.

As gypsy brewers, our beers are contracted at various host breweries throughout tristate area. We are working hard to open the doors of our own production facility and tap room in The Meadowlands. We broke ground on the space in Spring 2018 and hope to have doors open and beer flowing in the Spring/Summer of 2019.

Our team strives to create hand-crafted ales and lagers that are influenced by both traditional and emerging styles with our own bold spin. No BS…Just Ragin’ Good Beer!

Who We Are

Bob Olson, Jr.

Founder, Operations & Occasional Brewer

Bob was introduced to home brewing by a friend in 2009 and quickly caught the brewing bug. With a knack for small business and a little push from his wife Melanie, he decided to apply this entrepreneurial spirit to his new found passion and Bolero Snort was born. He focused on brewing creative, bold recipes that he enjoyed drinking, laying the groundwork for our slogan – No BS.. Just Ragin’ Good Beer! From sales to social media, he has his hands in almost every aspect of the brewery (don’t fret they aren’t physically in the beer, though he does assist on brew days).

When he’s not out lugging kegs, Bob enjoys reading, cooking, and attempting to keep his front lawn alive.

Scott Wells

Sales & Events Manager

Scott met Bob the week the brewery opened. A supporter of the brand from the start, Scott quickly started helping the brewery grow from the sidelines. After spending years working in sales and retail, and only being able to enjoy beer recreationally, Scott eventually joined the team in October of 2014 merging his sales ability and craft beer expertise. With a big personality, Scott handles most of our public events and partner outreach programs while he’s not spending time in the field.

When Scott isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and dogs, taking long walks to the bar, and shouting at the TV while watching the Devils, Giants and Yankees play poorly.
