Evan Price Leaves Post at Noble Ale Works
(Anaheim, CA) – Many were caught off guard this past weekend as Noble Ale Works announced the departure of head brewer Evan Price from his head brewer position. It’s stated that Evan is looking to start his own brewery. Evan is not dead, and we don’t want to eulogize him, but his impact on Noble and the southern California’s beer landscape cannot be understated.
He took what was once a struggling start up brewery, and turned it into a beer drinking destination, packed with fun and creative recipies. Just the creation of Naughty Sauce, a “golden milk stout” brewed with copious amounts of cold pressed coffee should be enough to put Evan in the craft beer hall of fame.
Anyone worried about the beer changing at Noble shouldn’t, as the entire team led by Evan are well equipped to continue innovating and impressing. Below is the official statement from Noble.
Almost 5 years ago, rambunctious young turk Evan Price was named Head Brewer of Noble Ale Works. At a time when Noble was in need of a fresh start, Evan’s larger than life personality and incredible sense of creativity were just what the doctor ordered for our tiny brewery. We soon discovered that Evan is more than an amazing brewer; he is an other-worldly promoter as well. Whether at a festival of 5000 people, or a tap takeover with five, Evan made it his mission to engage with everyone and spread the Noble love. In the last two years, Evan, along with a dedicated brewing team of giants, worked tirelessly to contribute to Noble’s ongoing success. Armed with a simple model of brewing damn good beer, this passionate group of brewers put Noble Ale Works on the map by medaling in consecutive years at Great American Beer Festival as well as bringing home a World Beer Cup Championship in 2016.
We’ve always known that Evan was destined for big things and that he was only in the infancy of his career. As of this week, Evan has decided to pursue his dreams of opening his own brewery. We are so proud and excited for our brother. We wish him nothing but success going forward. We are already anticipating his first release and will most definitely be waiting in line for a taste! Make sure to follow his journey at @evanthebrewer on IG.
Moving forward for Noble Ale Works, we are also excited to announce that our very own Brad Kominek will be promoted to Head Brewer. With an expansion underway for 2017, along with plans for a second brewing facility, we could not be more thrilled to have Brad in position to take the reigns and have been blown away by his recent IPA creations of 24K Juice, Crowler Phil and Cloud Strife. It is an exciting time for the Noble Family, and if you end up running into either of these fine gentlemen, we encourage you all to join us in congratulating them both on their future success.
