IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2016) - Evans Brewing Company (OTCQB: ALES), a producer of award-winning craft beers, today announced the hiring of Kevin Hammons, an experienced craft brewer and brewery manager, to serve as Director of Brewing at the company's Orange County, California brewery. As Director of Brewing, Mr. Hammons will be responsible for brewing operations, quality control, brewery team management, and related areas.
Mr. Hammons brings to the company over 7 years' experience in the craft beer business, specifically the successful management of brewing, brewery operations and associated duties. Like many in the craft brewing industry, Mr. Hammons began as a home brewer. Looking to turn his hobby into a career, he took a position as Inventory Manager with a boutique Orange County craft brewery, in 2009. Mr. Hammons was ultimately promoted to Brewing Manager, responsible for supervising and managing a team of up to 11 employees, including both the brewer and seller departments. Mr. Hammons' experience also includes operation of a barrel aging program and ensuring the quality of all beers produced at a craft brewing facility.
"We are very happy to have Kevin join our team to lead brewing operations at this important time," said Evan Rapport, Chief Operations Officer for Evans Brewing Company. "In addition to brewing the beers supplied to restaurants and other retailers in our growing 7-state distribution footprint, our brewery will be producing the beers served at The Public House, our first branded restaurant and tasting room, set to open soon in downtown Fullerton, California.
"The Public House will not only feature our 4 core year-round beers - Pollen Nation Honey Blonde Ale, The KrHOPen India Pale Ale, Oaklore Brown Ale, and ChocōLatté Chocolate Porter, but it will also offer other popular year-round, seasonal, and special release beers produced in our brewery.
"Kevin is expected to play an integral role in the development of planned future brewing facilities, including a larger Orange County brewery facility, the location of which we expect to announce in the coming months.
"All of these current operations and future plans will keep the brewery team very busy, and we have confidence in Kevin's ability to successfully lead these efforts," added Mr. Rapport.
"I could not be more pleased to accept the Director of Brewing position with Evans Brewing Company, and I look forward to contributing to its planned growth and expansion," commented Mr. Hammons. "With the opening of a restaurant and tasting room, additional beers being added to the company's offerings, and a planned new brewery on the horizon, Evans Brewing would be an exciting opportunity for any craft brewer."
