Brew Crew

Meet our Brew Crew! This group of hooligans comes from a wide variety of backgrounds and each one brings unique insights and talents to the table. We’re pretty fond of them. If you see us around the taproom, please don’t be shy, we love chatting it up!

Mr. Lazy Beach - Cory

Cory Mathews

Mr. Lazy Beach

Usually found near the flowing beer taps, Cory got his B.S. degree from Texas A&M Corpus Christi in Computer Science. Then threw it all away so he and Jess could start the brewery. He got his start in the brewing world along side the Big Kabrewna as two average home brewers. Over the years his job has changed, now who knows what he really does around here on an average day.

Jess Mathews

Mrs. Lazy Beach

Hide your kombucha-mosa while Jess is around, she got her B.A. degree from Texas A&M Corpus Christi in Theater and taught middle school before starting the brewery. Now she entertains patrons with her wit and interesting brew mixtures. You can find Jess partaking in the fun activities planned at the brewery and wrangling the little Beaches.

Drew Burkhardt

The Big Kabrewna

The father of our Texas Bock, Drew does all the heavy grain lifting. With over ten years of brewing experience under his belt, and his passion for catching waves his title came naturally. Don’t be fooled, even when Drew is sweating to death on a brew day he’s always willing to answer beer questions or discuss the intricacies of Star Wars and cinema.

Alexis De León

Kombucha Queen

Usually lurking alone in the Kombucha Lab or snapping photos around the brewery, Alexis received her B.S. in Marine Biology and a post BACC in Chemistry from TAMU-CC. After a super uninteresting life in Alaska working for the CDC, Alexis found her true calling for brewing sweet-tangy Booch for the masses. Today she is the creator and we are the home of Texas’ original Hard Kombucha.

Sarah Latham

Someone get her a title already!

Born in the USA but raised in Malaysia, Sarah moved all over the World before ending up at our humble brewery. Always our best volunteer, Sarah finally wore us down and found her place among our ranks. At any given moment you’ll find her doing literally all the things but always with a smile. She’s our go-to lady when things need to get done, answered, or scheduled.

Amanda Improte

Cafe Commander

Amanda hails from North Texas. She made the long trek to Corpus from Amarillo years ago and never looked back. After working several years in a very corporate kitchen, quarantine and fate brought her to Lazy Beach to command all that is our new cafe. You’ll find her sweaty and smiling as soon as you walk in to our old taproom. Love your sandwich? Let her know!
