THE TEAM

ZACH
 SWANSON

Zachary has been an avid, award-winning home brewer since 2005. Unable to find commercial examples of particular beer styles, Zachary decided to channel his inner Maverick and make his own.

Unbranded Brewing Co. draws on his ancestral lineage in its name, its cuisine, and, most importantly, its approach to beer. As the eponymous Samuel Maverick reframed conceptions of branding by openly defying them, so Zachary founds Unbranded Brewing Co. to transcend traditional styles of beer as it reinvents them.

DIRECTOR OF OPS

Lance is a Midwesterner, born and raised by the good folks of Bluffton, Indiana.  He moved to south Florida in 2012 where he completed his PhD at the University of Miami, learning the most important truth of all:

THAT IT’S ALL ABOUT THE U, BABY. 

 

In Miami, he fell in love with home-brewing and ultimately decided to make brewing a career, landing with Unbranded in 2015.  He and his wife Tamara are proud new parents to their very energetic son Silas, and a second one on the way!

 

  Ultimately, Lance is most inspired by the artist George Michael who taught him that, among other things, guilty feet have got no rhythm.

SALES DIRECTOR

CESAR  VASQUEZ

Hey everyone my name is Cesar Vazquez and I have 10 years of experience in the beer industry working from retail to wholesale, and as well as from the side of the supplier.

 

My hobbies include, but are not limited to subjects like fantasy and magic (think Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, or Game of Thrones and the like). I enjoy historical reenactment through The S.C.A. (or The Society for Creative Anachronism).

 

When I am not rolling dice, or playing video games, or reading a book I enjoy spending time with my son. I also enjoy cooking and standing among the crowd at concerts and events around the city- as there is so much to take in. Cheers!

 

JOEL
 DOMINGUEZ

What’s up Hialeah! My name is Joel Dominguez and I am the Pitmaster here at the Unbranded Smokehouse. I have been working with barbecue for about 2 years now and I’m still learning everyday and loving every part of the process.

 

For hobbies besides cooking, I play sports like football, basketball, lacrosse and take the occasional fishing trip. I love team environments so everyday with my crew at the brewery is a blast! 

If I’m not in the kitchen I also enjoy going out to local restaurants to enjoy the other side of the interaction. I enjoy to support the hard work it takes to pull off food service!

 

I hope you have the opportunity to venture out to our hidden gem in Hialeah for some delicious beer & bbq that I guarantee is made with love!
