Craft brewer 21st Amendment Brewery, San Francisco, appointed Dave Wilson as the company’s new partner and president. Wilson, who has been with the craft beer company since 2008, began as its national sales and marketing director when 21st Amendment first launched its canned craft beer in the market.

“Dave has been critical to our growth and success and has been deeply involved in every aspect of our business since the beginning,” said Nico Freccia, 21st Amendment co-founder, in a statement. “We feel extremely fortunate to have him running our team. With Dave’s 21 years of beer business experience on the distributor side, supplier side and restaurant side, Dave is a one-of-a-kind beer guy, and we’re thrilled to have him now as a full-time partner.”

Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founder and brewmaster, added in a statement: “When Nico and I started selling beer outside our pub in San Francisco, we knew as much about that as selling hats. Having Dave join [21st Amendment] has taken us from our humble beginnings to where we are today. It’s as big time as it gets.”

Outside of 21st Amendment, Wilson has for the past few years been involved as a co-founder of Crux Fermentation Project, a brewery venture in Bend, Ore., that he helped open in 2012. Having parted with Crux, Wilson will be devoting his full attention to 21st Amendment, according to the company.

“The future growth of [21st Amendment] is my top priority,” Wilson said in a statement. “These are exciting times with the construction and opening of our new facility in the Bay Area. The 21st Amendment is a special place, and I’m proud to call this home.”

As president, Wilson will oversee all aspects of the day-to-day operations of 21st Amendment’s production and business departments at the brewery offices, the company’s partner brewery in Cold Spring, Minn., and the San Francisco brewpub. Wilson also will be closely involved in the development of 21st Amendment’s new production facility, which is scheduled to open this fall in San Leandro, Calif.
