Jon Chiusano with wife and daughter

Hello

My name is Jon Chiusano

My goal is to humbly elevate the entirety of the craft brewing scene, as I firmly believe a rising tide lifts all ships in this industry. I recognize all craft breweries are passion projects, and I want to help refine and elevate my clients' products to bring their dreams to full manifestation.

My Story

I have been a professional brewer by trade for over 10 years and recently have begun entirely shifting my career into focusing more on consultations & build outs in the beverage industry. I have built out a number of brewing facilities, ranging from small pubs to larger production warehouses, throughout the entire Southern California area, and have done countless improvement projects as well.

My wife, a Resident Pediatrician, at UW-Madison American Family Children's Hospital, and her career has placed my family and I in the beautiful state of Wisconsin, and I have brought my passion for craft beer along the way. I continue to act as the Director of Brewing for the award-winning brewery Bearded Tang Brewing in Stanton, CA as well as Capistrano Brewing in San Juan Capistrano, CA for all of their expansion projects (including production facilities, satellite tasting rooms, and food halls), in addition to general brewing and business consulting.

I have worked for a number of award-winning breweries including Bottle Logic, TAPS Fish House & Brewery/Barrel Room, and currently Bearded Tang/Capo Brew. In 2014 I graduated from the American Brewers Guild's Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering program.

From 2014-2022, I received over 15 Brewers Association medals from the Great American Beer FestivalⓇ and World Beer CupⓇ, including a Brewpub Brewer of the Year award in 2015 with TAPS in Corona. I specialize in many classic lager styles and IPAs, and pride myself on the ability to hone in on any recipe and/or brewing process to create a world class beverage.

I come with many references throughout the entirety of the craft brewing scene as well as many tangential industries always available upon request. My goal is to provide a service of transparency and professionalism and to provide an equal passion for the products that my clients care for.
