SAN DIEGO — JuneShine, the hard kombucha business launched in June 2018, has hired Greg Peters, formerly Director of Brewing at Saint Archer Brewing, as Chief Brewing Officer.
JuneShine was founded by outdoorsmen and women seeking a healthier and more environmentally friendly alcohol. The Company opened their doors to business just 8 weeks ago, serving hard kombucha in their North Park brewery and tasting room, and launching distribution to over 60 on and off-premise accounts in San Diego.
Greg Peters joins JuneShine with over fifteen years of brewing experience, most recently at Saint Archer Brewing. He joined Saint Archer in 2014 to launch Tusk and Grain, the brewery’s specialty and barrel-aged division and departs under the title Director of Brewing. Prior to Saint Archer, Greg spent time brewing at notable craft breweries including Lost Abbey, Maui Brewing, and Pizza Port.
Greg’s role as Chief Brewing Officer will entail streamlining current production, further growing the JuneShine team, managing R&D, and focusing on expansion.
“From a skill set perspective, it is obvious that Greg joins our company with the competencies needed to help grow JuneShine from where we are now to where we want to be in the coming years. More importantly, Greg truly embodies our company’s culture: aside from being a best-in-class brewer, Greg is a talented musician and an avid outdoorsman – he shares our company’s emphasis on both creativity and environmental concerns,” commented Greg Serrao, co-founder of JuneShine.
“JuneShine’s Kombucha, philosophy, and culture perfectly align with the passionate people behind the brewery and brand. I am honored to join this team and incredibly excited to see what the future brings. Although this will be a departure from Craft Beer, I am grateful to remain in the industry alongside San Diego’s talented brewers,” commented Greg Peters.
JuneShine launched in June of 2018, with the mission to quench the thirst of the healthy and active, while positively impacting the environment. JuneShine is currently distributed throughout San Diego and sells product in the tasting room of their North Park-based brewery. JuneShine plans to expand production and distribution in the coming months. For more information, visit JuneShine.co and @juneshineco.
