Keith Villa, Ph.D., is brewmaster and co-founder of Colorado-based CERIA Brewing Company, a trailblazer in the rapidly growing market of non-alcoholic, cannabis-infused beers. After earning his PhD in brewing from the University of Brussels in Belgium, an honor only a handful of brewers have achieved, Keith returned to the states with the idea of crafting beers inspired by Belgian styles, but with a twist. He then began his 32-year career as founder and head brewmaster at Blue Moon Brewing Company, an operating unit of MillerCoors.
Since then, this beer doctor has gone on to brew several award-winning beers and continues to set new standards and push the boundaries of flavor, styles, and ingredients. Keith also is co-founder and head brewer of family business Donavon Brewing Company based in Arvada, Colorado. When Keith isn't brewing, you can find him riding motorcycles or cruising with his wife Jodi in their classic cars.
