Dave Kyrejko Post

Dave Kyrejko Post

Dave (@drinkicd) just wants to make things.

And he’s figured out a way to do just that.

Dave is the co-founder of The City Foundry, an R&D shop based in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The City Foundry’s primary focus is Industry City Distillery which has found a way to engineer their own beet sugar based vodka, Industry Standard, which is now available in over 120 locations across the country (including Astor Wines).

You’ll hear Dave discuss how he engineered his life to match his engineering ambitions, the inspiration of curiosity, and that what you believe you can or cannot do is up to you.

“It’s all about deciding where you want to be.” – Dave Kyrejko
