Rogue Ales Brewmaster John "More Hops" Maier

John "More Hops" Maier
Born in Riverside, CA in 1955, John originally moved to Portland, OR as a child in 1962. Later, he moved to Vista, CA after graduating from Vista High School in 1973. Afterwards, he attended the Devry Institute of Technology (Phoenix, AZ) and graduated in 1975.

John was employed by Hughes Aircraft Co. in El Segundo, CA from 1975 to 1986 as a Senior Electronic Technician. While there, he worked on the F-14 Tomcat Radar System.

In the Fall of 1986, John attended the Siebel Institute of Technology and graduated from their 50th course in Brewing Technology. That same year he brewed a barleywine that won the American Homebrewer Association’s Homebrewer of the Year Award.

The Alaskan Brewery in Juneau hired John as an Assistant Brewmaster in March of 1987. He left in May of 1989. John was there for the very first brew at the Rogue Ales Brewery in Newport, Oregon. He has since brewed over 100,000 pints of Rogue Ale and his ales have won over 500+ awards for taste and excellence.
