Co-Founder/Minister of Conveyance
Corban Lester is an XNFP ideas-guy who enjoys lifting heavy liquid weights, finding hidden delivery buzzers and inventing clever marketing campaigns. Despite being the most junior brewer of the team, Corban comes fully loaded with over 20 years' experience developing and advocating new products, taking them to market and building sales and fulfillment networks--primarily, but not exclusively in the energy efficiency / sustainability industry. Corban believes that craft brewing has become very similar to independent music during its heyday--but with far greater prospects for improving lives and communities. He started his career doing radio promotions at his family's indie record label, and has remained involved in the music industry most of his life. As a problem solver, Corban enjoys unlocking the potential behind their dreams. His philosophy involves integrity, sacrifice, and responsiveness.
