Jurado Makes Jump to Abita

The Abita Brewing Company has announced that long time industry veteran Jaime Jurado will join the company as Director of Brewing Operations. Jaime most recently spent nearly 15 years as Director of Brewing Operations for The Gambrinus Company breweries, which includes Spoetzl Brewery, BridgePort Brewing Company, and Trumer Brauerei Berkeley.

“Jaime has a tremendous amount of education and experience,” said David Blossman, president of Abita Brewing. “I created this new position to help Abita become even more efficient, consistent and maintain the commitment weʼve always had to quality before quantity.”

“Iʼm pleased to join the Abita team,” said Jurado. “I look forward to working with veteran Master Brewer Mark Wilson and his colleagues increasing development of new beers on the pilot brewing system, expanding sustainability and benefitting from the considerable talent and know-how of the Abita team.”
