Jon Strother, Brewer. Originally from California, Jon’s passion for brewing and love of the outdoors makes him the perfect brewer for Guanella Pass Brewery. Neighbors for years, one day Jon and Steve bumped into each other on a Tuesday afternoon at a local brewery. Both claimed to be doing weekday afternoon “research” (aka drinking beer) to fulfill their dreams of breaking into the brewing business. Ater an adequate sampling of beer, both felt it was a good idea to pursue those dreams together. Jon matriculated from Regis University’s inaugural program in Applied Craft Brewing and gained practical experience working in one of Denver’s premier craft breweries. Jon is committed to having a line-up of beer styles that appeal to the beer connoisseur as well as the casual beer drinker.
