For the past 20 years Chip has been trying to find his niche. He has worked in the retail, biotech, education, environmental protection, construction and service industries. But none have been able to capture his love of the outdoors and delicious beer. This led to the creation of Night Lizard Brewing Company and its unique mission to create the highest quality beer and give 10% back to the environment.
For as long as Juliet can remember, she has always had a deep love of nature. Conservation runs in her family. Juliet’s grandma, Juliet Rice Wichman, created the Limahuli Garden in Hawaii. Which became a part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden in 1976. Juliet is a proud fellow of NTBG to this Day. Joining Night Lizard in April 2020, she appreciates the brewery’s commit to high quality beer and the environment.
John Piel joined Night Lizard in 2020 as a brewer. His love of craft beer
inspired him to learn everything he could from Chip. John enjoys brewing, managing, and bartending in Night Lizard’s atmosphere. When he’s not at the brewery, his favorite thing to do in nature is to sail the Catlina 270. Being a professional ballet dancer gave him the privilege to perform all over the world, giving him an appreciation of gardens like Lotusland here in California.
