Spencer Nix, CEO and founder of Reformation Brewery

Preservation Woodstock has selected Reformation Brewery CEO Spencer Nix as the 2019 Barbara G. Ingram Citizen of the Year.

As a part of this honor, Nix will serve as the grand marshal for Woodstock’s Christmas Jubilee Parade.

Preservation Woodstock member Steve Campbell nominated Nix for his role in finding a new purpose for a historic structure in downtown Woodstock by choosing it for the new location for Reformation Brewery.

“During the present time with so many old buildings and structures being demolished for new development, it is important that we recognize those (who) save old structures and renovate them for further use. Spencer Nix is being recognized as our 'Citizen of the Year' for his efforts for saving the old Priest Home Furnishings warehouse to be utilized as a facility and meeting place for Reformation Brewery,” Campbell said.

The brewery founder happily accepted the honor.

“History is our story; an epic, a tragedy, a comedy, a quest, and a continual rebirth," Nix said. "Preserving our history gives our community its unique character and links us to the roots of the community and its people, adding to the quality of life."
