Cameron Fisher, Head Brewer, CraftHaus Brewery — Las Vegas

BREWER: What do you feel have been new challenges in your position that have helped push you and make you better at your job?
FISHER: Challenges with the supply chain have been prominent since the pandemic. Whether it be malt, barrels, labels, etc., we as a team have become better at planning ahead. We have also learned to be more flexible and patient when things arrive damaged, incorrect, late, or never.

BREWER: Why did you enter the craft beer industry and what makes you love being a part of it and staying in it?
FISHER: The passion for creating the perfect beverage for any opportunity is what drove me to brewing and continues to be the reason I love it. Always working on perfecting and learning, it is just a fun environment to be in and never feels stale.

BREWER: What are some recent trends in brewing that you’ve tried or are excited about trying?
FISHER: We have just started brewing our first sparkling Hop Water and we are all loving it at the brewery. I do see NA options becoming a larger portion of our business. I am most excited about some of the new hop innovations that have come out in the past year.

BREWER: What was your business’s greatest accomplishment during the past year, and what are your goals for your brewery this year?
FISHER: Last year we finally released our collaboration beer with UNLV. With the two owners and myself all being alumni this was really a passion project for us to get off the ground and has been a big success. 2023 will see the brewery’s first brand refresh and we are launching a new look for most of our beers. The goal is to tighten up our brewery flow by eliminating pre-wrapped cans from our floor.

BREWER: What are some changes in the industry that you’ve observed in the past few years, and how has your business adapted to stay competitive?
FISHER: We used to say a rising tide raises all boats. To be honest it is pretty cutthroat out there now securing taphandles. It seems like the moment we land an account we lose another one. To this end we are investing more on the sales side of things this year to hopefully retain all of those placements.
