welcome Jake Nunes!

While brief, this is a very exciting post: I am pleased to announce that we have offered our Taproom Manager position to a well qualified candidate who has accepted! We are thrilled to welcome Jake Nunes to our team!


Jake is a veteran of San Diego's food and beverage industry and has over 22 years of experience with a focus on management and bar leadership. He developed his passion for craft beer in 2003 while working at Karl Strauss and has since proven himself to be a true Craft Beer enthusiast who has sampled thousands of different beers and has visited over a hundred breweries. In addition to Karl Strauss, Jake has held positions at a number of breweries and craft beer establishments including Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits, Stone Brewing, Green Flash Brewing and Tiger! Tiger! Tavern. In 2011, Jake was awarded the title of Certified Cicerone® and he was one of the first to complete the Advanced Cicerone exam (results coming soon!). Jake currently serves on the Advisory Board for the Business of Craft Beer program at San Diego State University and is the instructor of the Beer Styles II course. Jake's extensive and well rounded experience makes him the ideal candidate to lead our taproom team.

In the coming weeks, Jake will be helping to interview and hire candidates for all taproom positions. Keep your eyes on our careers page as well as our social media outlets for these and other new career opportunities at North Park Beer Co.
