He will serve as the Association’s key liaison to its board of directors.

Papazian is the founder of the American Homebrewers Association® and the Association of Brewers (subsequently merged into the Brewers Association), as well as the Great American Beer Festival®.

“Since 1978, I have enjoyed championing the interests of craft brewers, homebrewers and their beers. And I have been fortunate to have a dedicated, talented colleague in Bob Pease, sharing those efforts with me for many of those years,” Papazian said. “Bob has been performing many CEO-related duties for quite some time now. This title change is a natural evolution that recognizes Bob’s successively growing responsibilities here at the Brewers Association.”

“The Brewers Association and all of its members have benefited greatly from the leadership and hard work of Bob Pease,” said Gary Fish, chair of the BA Board of Directors and president of Deschutes Brewery. “I think I speak for many in the craft brewing community when I say that we look forward to Bob’s continued service to members and in protecting the interests of the broader beer and brewing community.”

The Association’s membership includes a variety of constituents. With 47 full-time employees and additional independent contract staff, the Brewers Association serves 3,864 brewery members, 1,243 brewery-in-planning members, 576 distributor members, 877 allied trade members, 66 craft beer retailer members, and more than 45,000 members of the American Homebrewers Association.

Brew Hub to build second of its five breweries in St. Louis County

BeerPulse - Tue, 09/16/2014 - 18:53

News Wire: 

(St. Louis, MO) – Brew Hub, a company led by a team of beer industry executives and craft-brewing experts, has announced plans to build a new craft brewery in Chesterfield, Missouri in St. Louis County. The brewery will be Brew Hub’s corporate headquarters and the second in a network of five new, state-of-the-art craft breweries the company is planning to build that will offer craft brewers the opportunity to partner brew their beers on site. Brew Hub’s first brewery opened last month in Lakeland, Florida.

Partner brewing is a process that allows craft breweries to brew their beer to exact specifications under the supervision of their own brewmaster, and to package and distribute from Brew Hub. Brew Hub also offers its partners services including sales, marketing, logistics, legal, and government affairs. Partner brewing allows craft brewers to expand their distribution without the overhead costs of building a new brewery or the complexity of contract brewing at third-party facilities.

“The announcement of our second craft brewery is a huge milestone for Brew Hub, and it’s a reflection of the incredible growth of craft beer over the past several years,” said Tim Schoen, founder and CEO of Brew Hub. “Our objective from the beginning was simply to help craft brewers grow by offering the facilities, brewing and beer industry expertise they need. Our St. Louis brewery is going to allow many more craft brewers to benefit from our model.”

The St. Louis brewery will be located off I-64 in Chesterfield, Missouri and will have an initial brewing capacity of 75,000 barrels (one million cases) and the potential to expand its capacity to 200,000 barrels annually. Brew Hub plans to begin construction of the St. Louis brewery by the end of the year and open the brewery in early 2016. The site’s central location will allow the company to efficiently distribute beer to wholesalers in key craft beer markets throughout the Midwest. The agreement to build Brew Hub’s St. Louis brewery is contingent upon the approval of state and local tax incentives.

“Brew Hub’s decision to build their second craft brewery in Chesterfield is a huge economic win for the entire St. Louis region,” said Denny Coleman, CEO of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. “St. Louis has an amazing brewing tradition dating back to the early 1800s. Today’s growing craft beer movement continues that tradition and has resulted in dozens of new craft breweries and related businesses in our area, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Brew Hub.”

The brewery will feature a 3,000-square-foot tasting room and biergarten. The brewery also will offer merchandise and free brewery tours. Brew Hub will employ approximately 55 people at its St. Louis brewery in brewing, operations, front office and its tasting room.

“We have had meetings and are negotiating partnerships with some of the top craft breweries in the Midwest,” said Schoen. “Our St. Louis brewery is going to allow these brewers to expand to new states and grow their brands like never before, and we couldn’t be more excited.”

Brew Hub currently has partnerships with several award-winning craft brewers, including Cigar City Brewing, Orange Blossom Pilsner, Green Man Brewing and BJ’s Restaurants (Nasdaq: BJRI). Brew Hub partner brews beer for all four companies at its brewery in Lakeland, Florida and is in discussions to begin brewing their beer at the St. Louis brewery when it opens.

Brew Hub was founded by a team of beer industry executives led by CEO Tim Schoen and Brew Hub President Jerry Mullane. Brew Hub’s financial sponsor is a private investment firm, The Yucaipa Companies

Brew Hub plans to open three more breweries during the next five years. Specific markets will be determined based on demand, but the company is considering strategic locations in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Texas and West Coast. This network of Brew Hub facilities will allow craft brewers from across the country to enter new markets.

About Brew Hub
Brew Hub was founded in 2012 in St. Louis, Missouri by a team of beer industry executives and craft brewing experts led by Tim Schoen. “Where Craft Brewers Go to Grow,” Brew Hub provides full brewing, packaging, distribution and selling services for craft brands that are constrained by capacity, geography or capital. The company plans to have five breweries located throughout the country that will cater to craft breweries. Each facility will allow craft brewers to partner brew their beers on site.

Perich, who started as CFO with New Belgium in 2004, has overseen all aspects of operations since 2009.

Perich will now have oversight of all day-to-day operations and the construction and integration of the company’s second production facility in Asheville, North Carolina, which is slated for completion in late 2015. She will continue to report directly to CEO and co-founder Kim Jordan and New Belgium’s Board of Directors.

Current New Belgium Director of Finance and Accounting, Danielle McLarnon, will move into the role of Chief Financial Officer. McLarnon, a graduate of Siena College, has been with New Belgium for more than ten years.

“Danielle has grown to be a vibrant leader at New Belgium and I am extremely excited for her to move into the role of Chief Financial Officer,” said Perich. “She is incredibly talented and we are fortunate to have someone of her caliber.”

“Both of these women have proven themselves time and again to be sound stewards of our financial and operational systems,” Jordan said. “Growth creates opportunity, and they have both worked expertly on complex projects like our transition to 100% ESOP ownership and the financing of our Asheville brewery. We are excited for this next chapter.”

Both positions will go into effect immediately. Jordan will remain as CEO of New Belgium, focusing on branding, sales, industry affairs and the company’s strategy.

Victory Moonglow Weizenbock returns in four-packs, dons new look

BeerNews.org - Tue, 09/16/2014 - 14:49

News Wire: 

(Downingtown, PA) – Victory Brewing Company® (Victory) is pleased to announce the release of Mooonglow Weizenbock, a bottle conditioned German style ale, rich in malt tones, spicy fruit aromas and warming flavors which combine to create the perfect autumnal elixir.

Originating from German brewing tradition, this ‘bock’ beer utilizes German hops and a strain of ‘weiss’ (‘wheat’) beer yeast, which plays a major role in charging the ale with flavors reminiscent of clove, vanilla and honey. As per traditional German style conventions, it is comprised of two different types of malted wheat totaling nearly 60% of the grist among the seven varieties of malted grains employed. This recipe, with its historic roots, revitalizes a refreshing, well-made style of ale that is rare today.

Drinking a Moonglow Weizenbock is much like traveling back in time, due to the strict, age-old, quality controlled brewing process it adheres to. Simultaneously, the brew stands out amongst the current trend of hoppy, American ales with a fresh, exciting flavor profile, driven by malt and yeast. Harvest fruit flavors conjuring fresh apple and pear lead into notes of caramel and toffee, resolving into spicy characteristics that leave a satisfying impression comparable to frothy banana bread in this tempting ale.

Moonglow Weizenbock, has an ABV of 8.7% and is available at craft beer bars, bottle shops, beer distributors and major gourmet grocery stores throughout Victory’s 35 state distribution footprint, with a suggested retail price of $9.99 and will be sold in 12 ounce 4 packs. Use Victory’s Beerfinder to discover a nearby location, or download the free Victory Mobile app for Android or iPhone.

“This beer is a vivid example of what our company is all about – the exploration of German brewing traditions combined with our individual creative ingenuity,” said President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “Whether clearing new paths or rediscovering old roads via glow of the autumnal moon, this is a product that celebrates the spirit of that journey.”

About Victory Brewing Company

Victory Brewing Company is a craft brewery headquartered in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Founded by childhood friends, Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet, who met on a school bus in 1973, Victory officially opened its doors in February of 1996. In addition to the original Downingtown brewery and brewpub, Victory recently opened a second state-of-the-art brewery in Parkesburg, PA to expand production capabilities and serve fans of fully flavored beers in 35 states with innovative beers melding European ingredients and technology with American creativity.
