Justin Catalana

Co-Founder, CEO, Fort Point Brewing

Justin Catalana is co-founder and CEO of Fort Point Beer Company—a independent San-Francisco brewery known for making unconventional, yet easy-to-enjoy beers. Prior to Fort Point, Justin abandoned a career in bioengineering to found Mill Valley Beerworks. Raised by a general contractor, and a nurse, Justin is motivated by a restless desire to take things apart and put them back together. He approaches beer and business with the eye of an engineer, thinking through each challenge from first-principles and making things from scratch wherever he sees room for improvement. After just 5 years in business, Fort Point is now sold in San Francisco’s most celebrated restaurants, as well as its most humble corner stores and Justin couldn’t be prouder.
