Jenn Huston

Human Resources


After being raised in Georgia, Jenn headed for the Rockies in the late-90s in search of big adventure and even bigger mountains to climb. While in Colorado, when she wasn't tackling 14k peaks, she got her first taste of craft beer at some of the state's early breweries like the Dillon Dam Brewery in Summit County.


After returning east in 2002, Jenn joined Outward Bound, the prestigious outdoor leadership pioneer and worked her way up the ranks at outposts in Florida and South Carolina.


In 2009, she took a position at the Nantahala Outdoor Center and moved to Bryson City where she eventually found her way to our brewery.


Today, she uses her leadership, management and communication skills earned in the wilderness to manage our Tap Room.
