Aaron is an expert in the food and beverage industry, helping to grow successful companies for 15 years. He decided to leave the restaurant world and come to the beer side of the business in 2009. This is when he joined the Marble team as a Territory Sales Manager. Together with the driven and passionate distribution and sales team, he was instrumental in structuring and growing the wholesale business for Marble. Having first-hand knowledge in all sides of the hospitality business, he is able to bridge the gap between distributors and buyers by managing the specific needs of each link in the chain. From our brewhouse to the taps and shelves, Aaron manages the unique demands in each market and helps drive production through detailed inventory controls and forecasting demands each week. When he’s not crunching numbers, he’s enjoying craft beer and spending his free time with his family and friends.
Dan came to work for Marble as a delivery driver in April of 2009. As the only driver for the Albuquerque area, he handled all of the deliveries and doubled as the draft technician. With the enormous popularity of Marble Beer, and as wholesale demand grew, it became obvious that one driver and truck weren’t enough. More drivers, trucks and wholesale accounts created the need for someone to manage it all, and the Distribution Manager position was developed. Dan was the obvious choice for the job, and he now runs Marble Distributing, which enjoys continued growth and success year after year.

With humble beginnings rooted in a bus/house combination in Silver City, NM,
you could say Anna has come a long way. She graduated from UNM in 2009 with

the intricacies of every human fluid, she sought a more challenging and
complex arena. Enter Marble Brewery and the art of crafting beer. Part
science, part dark magic, Anna has fallen in love with the process of
brewing and the community that surrounds it. She enjoys being surrounded by
people with fun-loving attitudes and a commitment to creating a quality
product. As a native New Mexican, she is proud to be part of the craft beer
scene here. When not wrangling yeast, Anna enjoys spending time outside rock
climbing, camping, snowboarding and road-tripping.
Nathan grew up with a passion for learning about how things work. He took apart electronics as a kid and learned to put them back together, though not always successfully. Thankfully, he’s gotten better, and it’s not surprising that he is now in charge of all things packaging for Marble Brewery. So, the next time you drink a bottle or can of Marble beer, know that there was probably a lot of taking things apart and putting them back together to get you that perfectly packaged beer.
