Joshua Counsil


Josh is a recovering engineer turned entrepreneur and co-founder of Good Robot Brewing, a renowned hospitality, CPG, and manufacturing company. In 2014, he and his university housemates quit their engineering careers, starting with a scrappy brewpub in Halifax and growing into 3 bars, export across Canada, and contract manufacturing services. Josh is often called the voice, heart, and soul of Good Robot (anything but the liver).
