Kelly Larson


Summit Brewing Company




Big things have been brewing for Kelly Larson. After navigating the financing for an addition that enabled Summit to double beer production, she dug right back in to facilitate the purchase of the structure next door, which the brewery used to finally start producing canned suds last May. Surprisingly, she’s not only the CFO of a $30 million company, she’s also human resources director. Fortunately, Summit’s level of employee angst is “virtually zero.” Why? Summit’s free-beer-in-the-workplace policy may be a factor.
