  5. Commonhouse Aleworks announced that John McAlexander has been promoted to the position of Head Brewer. McAlexander joined the Commonhouse team earlier this year as Assistant Brewer where his role included malt handling and wort production, yeast management, quality control, as well as other aspects of the brewing process. As Head Brewer, McAlexander will be directing the entire production operation and brew team while managing the consumption demands both in-house as well as in distribution.

    After more than 10 years brewing, Shane Cummings, who held the position of Head Brewer before McAlexander, is retiring from the industry and looks forward to a change of pace, spending time with his wife and newborn son, and whatever new adventures life has in store.
