Maria Juarez joins the team

We’re excited to announce that Maria Juarez has joined our team as the new Sales Rep for TAS and NZ. Maria has more than 5 years experience in the beer industry. During her time as Craft Sales Account Manager for ABInBev and Beer Rep for Feral and Kaiju!, Maria’s love for beer grew alongside her knowledge of beer which ignited a keen interested in its raw ingredients – specifically hops. 

Having family all over the world, Maria has travelled extensively. She has a Bachelor of Applied Science in International Business Law that she started in Cincinnati, Ohio and finished in Ansbach, Bavaria. Maria took advantage of her time in Europe, going to all the major brewing hubs and five Oktoberfests. So after more than ten years in Sales in the oil and gas industry, she decided it was finally time to follow her true passion – beer.

Maria is excited to meet all of our TAS and NZ brewing customers, and help them make the best beers possible by providing a great range of products and a higher level of service (which is something we know we have been missing in these regions for some time).         

Maria and Owen will be working together over the next few weeks to make sure she’s across our TAS and NZ brewing customers hop requirements, and she’ll be lining up some brewery visits very soon. In the meantime, you can get in touch with Maria at or +61 498 648 770 for a bit of banter, and to discuss your Aussie, international and innovation product requirements.
