Maui Brewing Company has filled it’s vacant Director of Brewery Operations position with the very talented Jesse Houck. The position was previously held by Darren Moser who left late last year to head up Iron Triangle in Los Angeles.
Jesse comes to Maui from Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, where he helped craft some of their most popular beers. I was living in LA when Jesse took over the head brewer position there and the change in quality was very noticeable. Before Golden Road, Jesse held position at Drakes, 21st Amendment and Speakeasy Ales & Lagers.
Here are quotes from Jesse and Maui Brewing owner Garrett Marrero from tomorrow’s upcoming press release:
“I am beyond stoked to be working with such a strong leader as Garrett and the talented team he has assembled here on Maui,” stated Jesse Houck.
“I’ve known Jesse for most of my career in craft beer and have always been impressed with his brewing talent, and proud to call him a friend. I’m stoked to have him at the helm of our brewing operations and we’re looking forward to some awesome projects coming down the pipe,” added Founder and CEO Garrett Marrero.
This is an exciting addition to the Maui Brewing team in what looks to be a very busy year for them. The brewery just added a bunch of new 250bbl fermenters, which greatly increases their brewing capacity, and has plans to open two new restaurants.
