Lisa AllenNEW MAKER!

McMinnville, TN, United States


Lisa Allen came to be a brewer via the wine industry but is no stranger to craft beer. A native Oregonian, Lisa grew up in a family of home brewers and craft beer enthusiasts. In 2007 her father, Rick Allen, started Heater Allen Brewing, concentrating on German and Czech-style lager beers. Lisa joined the brewery in late 2009 and started as many brewers do: cleaning kegs. At the beginning of 2017 Lisa started taking over the head-brewer role from her father, who hopes to mostly retire in the next few years. Lisa is honing her tasting skills and hopes to someday judge beers at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup. When Lisa isn't at the brewery she enjoys spending time outside, playing with her terrier-mix, Iggy, visiting new places, and drinking champagne (or beer, of course!).
