Beavertown Brewery’s director of operations and head brewer has left the group, MCA understands.

Jenn Merrick had been with the Logan Plant-led group since 2013, when she joined as head brewer. She soon added operations manager to her role and was appointed operations director last year.

Cosmo Sutherland, who has worked for Beavertown since 2014, was appointed the group’s lead brewer at the end of last year.

The group is believed to be eyeing its first bar for launch this year and is also looking to diversify into spirits.
