The Supply Chain Subcommittee welcomes two new members who will bring valuable experience and fresh perspectives to the committee. Jody Valenta, who has had many leadership roles in the craft brewing business, and Alexandra Nowell, a creative force in production brewing.
Ms. Valenta is the President and COO of Roadhouse Brewing Company based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, leader of the Wyoming chapter of the Pink Boots Society, and President of the Wyoming Brewers Guild. With a master’s degree in international business and over 15 years experience running organizations, Jody matches her professional pursuits with a passion for the culture-forward and innovation-driven nature of craft beer. She has a long standing belief in sustainably sound business practices and works to integrate them into her roles and organizations.
As one of the smaller breweries on the committee, I’m excited to bring a 10,000 barrel view to the conversation and am eager to work with fellow committee members to provide support and opportunity for all awesomely independent craft breweries.

Alexandra Nowell is the Brewmaster and Director of Brewery Operations at Three Weavers in Inglewood, California. Alexandra’s love of beer and inspiration for brewing is found in the roots of the recipe, where she strikes a balance between science, art, and intention. She is a self-professed born and raised California brewer, and is known for creating balanced beers with bright and harmonious flavors and aromas.
Over the course of my career, I have developed a special interest in the raw ingredient supply chain, with a focus on the crucial relationships linking brewers, growers, brokers, and all facets in between. I am excited to have the opportunity to share what I have learned with the brewing community.

Along with fresh faces, the Supply Chain Subcommittee welcomes a new role for long time committee member Jeremy Moynier who recently accepted the position of Committee Co-Chair alongside Mitch Steele. Mr. Moynier started his beverage career in wine on the Central Coast of California in 1995 before moving back to his home town of San Diego and joining Stone in 2004. Jeremy is part of the Innovation Team which is responsible for new beer development and release, and is also focused on sensory and quality at the brewery. A big part of his role centers on ingredients, especially hops, including selection, trials, grower relations, and working with industry groups including the Hop Research Council and Hop Quality Group.
I feel truly fortunate to be part of a such a collaborative industry. The knowledge and relationships I’ve gained over the last 17 years are incredible and I’m lucky to have fun at “work” every day. I’m excited to Co-Chair the BA Supply Chain Subcommittee with Mitch Steele, someone I worked closely with for 10 years at Stone. I look forward to contributing and continuing to learn with this great group.
