“I’ve been very lucky to have seen so many evolutions in the beer business. Craft Brew Alliance opened so many doors and educated me in so many ways I’m still blown away at what I’ve learned,” states Dobler in a statement.
When things went south for him while at Mt. Tabor Brewing, Dobler saw the opportunity for a new challenge at Laurelwood, a brewery that is well established that was in need of a brewmaster. Through its long history, the 15-year-old brewery has had an impressive lineup of brewers.
“Those are some big shoes I have to fill,” says Dobler in a statement. “Laurelwood is a 15-year-old heritage brand that is deeply woven in to the brewing fabric of Oregon. Mike and his team have built a great brand and make great beers. I look forward to a long and successful future with this brewery.”
