Regan Long

As Co-Founder of Local Brewing Co, Regan's vision has been laser-focused on creating more than just great beer, but rather an awesome brewery experience. With fifteen years in science, business strategy and innovative start-ups under her belt, the next big challenge was to bring Local to life in San Francisco – her home of 20 years. Hailing originally from Oregon, she's been a homebrewer for 13 years, and has guest-brewed at several Oregon and California breweries. She holds degrees in Physics and Oceanography and a brewing certificate through Seibel Institute of Technology World Brewing Academy. Her role at Local is run all aspects of the business while building all of Local's innovative rotating and flagship beer recipes.

Her twenty years in leadership communication and strategy building in corporate and small-business arenas makes her a super asset to the Local Team. She's often behind the scenes thinking up the next great brew name.
Spencer
Lead Bartender
Spencer came to Local after a long bartending stint at a once famous bar down in the Presidio. As a long-time homebrewer with a taste for sours and sexy IPAs, he was looking to join a brewery team as his next career step. He's been with us from Day 1 leading our bartending team. In his spare time, you'll find him tasting sours from the newest local brewery or on the pitch playing soccer.

12/22/2015: Lighthouse Dunkel
In December 2015, we held our first annual Local Lighthouse Homebrew competition. We had 62 entries from all over California. Trevor's Munich Dunkel won Best of Show, and we brought him in to brew his recipe on our system for feature during SF Beer Week 2016. Trevor has been homebrewing for seven years, and has received several homebrewing accolades, including awards from AHA National Competition, California State Homebrewers Competition, and the California State Fair Competition. We were excited to work with him to scale his Dunkel to our 10-barrel system to give him some exposure.
