JOHN GOZIGIAN

Executive Director
A native of the Rochester, NY area, John grew up drinking local beer from a medium-size regional brewery that survived prohibition and the ensuing consolidation of the American brewing industry. That’s right – he grew up drinking local beer – back in the days when a youngster could take a sip from his Dad’s tin can of Genesee beer without causing so much as a raised eyebrow. John has been in the brewing business for two decades, having opened and operated two brewery restaurants, multiple tap rooms and a production brewery. John is also one of the original founders of Marble Brewery, an Albuquerque-based production brewery. John’s experience includes brewpub management, tap room management, brewery start-ups, distribution management, sales, and marketing. John is also a solidly mediocre cellarman and packaging technician. Having retired from active brewery management and operations, John now serves and supports the craft brewing industry in his position as Executive Director of the New Mexico Brewers Guild.

Alana has been honored to serve on the NMBG Board over the last four years and is very excited at the progress the Guild is making.

On the board, she has made it a point to consider how breweries of all sizes and business models will be affected by Guild decisions. Alana would like to see the Guild build on the events they have established and to grow marketing efforts to bring more attention to the varied and delicious brews throughout New Mexico.

James Warren is the Director of Brewing Operations for Santa Fe Dining Inc. Originally from Texas; he earned a degree in the Fine Arts from Baylor University, and has shown his work in numerous shows and galleries over the past 10 years.

Shortly after, he was hired as a brewer for the New England Brewing Company in Woodbridge, CT. It was under the watchful eye of many wonderful mentors, that James learned the delicate art of balancing ingredients while staying on top of an ever changing industry and an increasingly educated consumer base. During his time at NEBCO he attended the American Brewer’s Guild and earned his diploma in Brewing Science & Engineering, followed by the Siebel Institute with a diploma in Distillery Operations. At Blue Corn Brewery in Santa Fe, NM he spread his enthusiasm for the craft beer industry through customer education and creating a variety of styles to showcase the expansive range of profiles that brewing has to offer.
