Les Locke

Head Brewer

Born and raised in San Antonio, Les discovered home brewing in the Marines while stationed in Hawaii at the age of 19.  After returning to San Antonio to attend college, Les discovered that San Antonio lacked a brewing culture and scene so he moved to Eugene, Oregon where he earned a Masters degree in economics and began his professional brewing career in a small brewpub. After moving back home to San Antonio and completing an MPA degree, he ended his career as an economist and opened Branchline Brewing as the head brewer. In 2014, he was hired as part of the opening team at Southerleigh as their head brewer.
