JIM VARELA

BREWER

Jim was born and raised in Merrimack, NH (he was Mr. Merrimack High School 2010…NBD) and fell in love with craft beer at Able Ebenezer.

He accepted a position at Iron Heart Canning Company, a role which brought him into the craft beer industry (and to the edge of sanity with the long hours). After we hired him, he kept coming in on his days off to fire up the pilot 5-gallon brewing system so we thought he be more useful making beer than selling it.

He used to spend his free time camping, hiking, fishing, snowboarding, playing lacrosse and football, but now he’s a new dad (don’t feel bad for him; she’s adorable).

Voted 2018 “Best Hair” by the Able Ebenezer Team.
