Beer Birthday: Jaime Jurado

abita-new
Today is the birthday of Jaime Jurado, who for many years was the Director of Brewing Operations for the Gambrinus Company, which included several beer brands and breweries, such as Shiner, BridgePort, Pete’s Wicked and Trumer. A couple of years ago, he moved to Pennsylvania, where he was the brewmaster at Susquehanna Brewing Co. in Pittston, but at the beginning of this year he moved once again, this time to Louisiana, to become Director of Brewing Operations at Abita Brewing. He’s an incredibly talented brewer. More importantly, Jaime is one of the nicest people I know in the business. Join me wishing Jaime a very happy birthday.

    Happy Birthday, Jaime. Couldn’t agree more with Jay. I know from my years working with you at Gambrinus that you are both a gifted brewer and planner and an all-around great guy. Wishing you a great day and exciting year. Cheers, Greg
