Washington Brewers Guild Hires Staff

Guild hires first two paid staff positions

The Washington Brewers Guild has appointed its first two paid staff members, signaling the growth of the brewing industry in Seattle.

New Executive Director Arlen Harris is currently a brewer for Rogue Ales and an active member of the microbrew community in Washington. Marketing Director Lisa Miyashita previously worked with the Guild as event coordinator of Summer Brewfest, Fremont Oktoberfest, and Hops on Equinox.

The Brewers Guild aims to build a community of Washington state brewers while promoting the quality of local beer. The group hopes that the creation of these two positions will further projects like WABL (Washington Beer Lovers Club) and new promotion campaigns like Washington Beer Month.
