AGOURA HILLS CA – Cyrena Nouzille, Co-founder and General Manager of Ladyface Ale Companie and its brewpub Ladyface Alehouse & Brasserie, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the national Brewers Association. Chairman of the Brewers Association Board of Directors, Sam Calagione, announced the winning candidates of the recent Board of Directors election on the Association forum. Board members serve a three-year term.
The Brewers Association is a nonprofit trade association and is the largest organization of brewers in the United States with more than 1,900 brewery members and 38,000 American homebrewers . It was established in 2005 by a merger of the Association of Brewers and the Brewers' Association of America with the goal of unifying a combined 94-year history of service to promote and protect the U.S. craft brewing community's interests. An American craft brewer is defined as small, independent, and traditional.
“It was an honor to be nominated and I am humbled to be elected,” said Nouzille. “As a member of the Board, I will strive to foster the Association’s education resources and information network as it is a tremendous opportunity to exchange ideas and help our industry communicate and thrive as businesses and extensions of our personalities.”
Nouzille, a resident of Agoura Hills and former Planning Commissioner for the city, currently serves on Brewers Association’s Brewpub Committee. Ladyface Ale Companie is also one of the founding members of the Los Angeles Brewers Guild and Nouzille will be serving on its 2014 Events Committee.
