Founder and Chief Instigator
A Carpinteria native, John has spent the majority of his life pursuing a way to promote sustainability and living/surfing close to home. Two Master's degree's and 10+ years living around the world later, he finally found a way. It just took 8 years of planning, fundraising, and other fun stuff to get the organic brewery open. As Chief Instigator, his main role is to make stuff happen.
Punk-rock dad by day, ninja assistant brewer by night, and sometimes you’ll see him at the taps slinging Leashless beers too. Just don’t look under the hat - you might spy a mohawk ... maybe 15 years ago that is in his heyday … In his spare time, tho’, he’s still chargin’ hard and spinning out his own recordings on his own label (Rotten To The Core Records) and distributing other hard-core punk vinyl.
Draft Master & Graphic Artist
A native of Encinitas, California, Paige moved to Ventura after finishing college at the University of Oregon. When she isn’t slinging beers and stoking fans out in the tasting room, she’s probably drawing, longboarding, or finding any excuse to get a board under her feet. She’s leashless afterall, so the sky’s the limit…until there’s a way to shred up there too.
After finishing a Bachelor’s degree in physics where he took on a Master’s degree level research project involving MRI coils, Lukas decided to try his hand at something much more difficult - Draft Master at Leashless.
A jack-of-many-trades, you'll find Leila usually slingin' beers behind the bar, training new staff, or helping out with whatever needs to be done. She is also our resident techie behind the scenes.
