WESTMINSTER, Md. — The 1623 Brewing family is growing. The brewing company is proud to announce its new territory sales manager, Carrie Nevius.
Nevius is a fourth-generation dairy farmer who helped her father to manage their family farm in Westminster, Maryland. She studied history at McDaniel College in Westminster (the same alma mater as 1623 owner Mike McKelvin back when it was called Western Maryland University).
“I’ve spent a lot of time researching new agricultural trends, including community supported agriculture, and I discovered Maryland’s developing craft beer industry along the way,” Nevius said. “The beer community here is deeply rooted in agriculture.”
Nevius was attracted to 1623 Brewing for its slogan, “Family Owned, Community Driven.”
“This is exactly what I believe in, that business and community should mutually benefit from each other,” she said. “The fact that Mike and Zac want the brewery to be their family legacy is also very special to me, and is similar to the farming culture in Maryland.”
Nevius is 1623’s Territory Sales Manager, handing field sales and marketing throughout 1623 Brewing’s Maryland and Pennsylvania distribution. At home she and her husband grow their own hops, and reach for Belgian-style beers— anything from Witbier to Saison, funky sours and everything in between. Nevius was also just awarded her level one Cicerone Certification.
