About Topa Topa:
Born from a strong desire to produce a high quality, tangible product, Founder/CEO Jack Dyer, along with Brewmaster/COO (and Co-Founder) Casey Harris founded Topa Topa Brewing Co. in 2015. Built on the core values of quality, craftsmanship, and community spirit, Topa Topa Brewing Co. works hard everyday to create a high quality product served up with a smile. Topa Topa Brewing Company is nestled in the shadows of the Topa Topa Mountains, in the seaside town of Ventura, CA. Just off the 101, 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles, and down the hill from Ojai, Topa Topa is surrounded by all that inspires us: amazing friends, farms, mountains, and some awesome surf.
Jack founded Topa Topa along with Brewmaster Casey Harris with a goal of creating something (beer) that he could build a community around and use as a cause for good. After 16 years in direct sales and management positions in higher education, Jack decided to pursue his passion for good vibes and great beer. Managing Topa’s growth over the last 6+ years, Jack helped take the company from 4 total employees with one location to over 80+ with 5 locations and a wholesale distribution network. If you don’t see Jack at one of our taprooms with a pint in hand, you can likely find him enjoying our fabulous region on any network of trails or in the ocean surfing, bodysurfing, or sailing!
