Ed has been friends with co-owner Chris Montana since 2000, when they met as YMCA camp counselors. Since then, Ed played a critical role in getting the Cocktail Room off the ground in 2015, and has been involved at one time or another in nearly every aspect of Du Nord. He brings a wealth of bartending knowledge along with a great attitude to Du Nord. Ed holds an M.Ed. from the U of M in Youth Development Leadership, and was practically meant to be a camp counselor. He spends his days planning campus life activities for the University of St. Thomas, and his nights cracking up our guests with his epic camp jokes while giving tours of the Du Nord distillery. Ed has an iron stomach and claims the spiciest of foods to be wimpy.
