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 22 years. Hailing originally from Oregon, she's was a long-time home brewer, then guest-brewed at several Oregon and California breweries before starting Local. 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 brewing all of Local's innovative rotating and flagship brews.

She's often behind the scenes thinking up the next great brew name.
Jamie McMackin
Logistics Lead
Our GOT Logistics Lead, Jamie, has a long, diverse background doing everything from being a UPS Driver to a Massage Therapist. He specializes in taking Local beer from the tank, into the keg and then on to the customer without missing a beat (or getting parking tickets). He's our sole delivery guy braving the Bay Area streets, so give him a fist bump when you see him out on the road.

Guest Brewers

Anchor Brewing > Dane Volek
Beer brewed:
07/28/2017: Anchored at Local
We were selected by the rad brewing team at Anchor Brewing to brew their first ever collaboration beer here at Local. Dane came over and we brewed a hazy IPA using new and old school hopping techniques with three different form factors of hops: hop pellets, hop lupulin powder and whole cone hops. The beer was so successful, we brewed two batches, canned it and brewed it again at Anchor Public Taps. It was also listed as one of Ken Weaver's Top beers of 2017.
Mike Galli
Beer brewed:
02/09/2018: West Coast Lighthouse
For our 2017 Competition we made a call for IPAs only with the intent of brewing the winning recipe in both West and East Coast styles -- West Coast being more traditional with bitterness and clarity, and the East Coast style being more juicy, less bitter and hazy. With dry-hop additions of Citra, Mosaic, Cascade and Amarillo -- Mike Galli came correct to beat out the competition with his American IPA recipe. And, it turns out he took second place last year, so he was destined to be in the Brewhouse with Regan.
Steve Tanner
Beer brewed:
01/15/2016: Lighthouse Coconut Chocolate Milk Porter
Steve Tanner's Coconut Chocolate Milk Porter won Best in Show in our second annual Local Lighthouse Homebrew Competition in late 2016. It was hard to beat with the onslaught of ingredients in this beer, ranging from rich Belgian malts, cocoa nibs, coffee, vanilla, lactose and coconut in every stage of the process (mash, kettle, post). The resulting brew was a deliciously balanced 5.5% porter. Our team nicknamed it "Chocolate Milk" and we featured his recipe during SF Beer Week 2017.
Trevor Martens
Beer brewed:
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.
