In 2018, Keith retired as Head Brewmaster of Blue Moon Brewing Company. As Co-Founder of Donavon Brewing Company, Keith brings his 32 years of brewing experience and his expertise in creating quality, craft beers to our boutique brewery. Keith looks forward to continuing his award-winning success while brewing high-end, quality beers with his family. When Keith isn't brewing, you can find him riding motorcycles or cruising with Jodi in their classic cars.

 

JODI VILLA

Co-founder & president
donavon's daughter

As Donavon’s daughter, Jodi was exposed to the brewing industry at a young age while Donavon worked at Coors Brewing Company. Jodi met Keith in high school; and then joined him at the University of Colorado in Boulder where she majored in engineering. After marrying, Jodi and Keith spent three years in Brussels, Belgium while Keith obtained his PhD. Jodi worked in the Civil Engineering field for over 30 years and, in 2018, retired from engineering to become President and Co-Founder of Donavon Brewing Company. On the weekends, Jodi enjoys working in her garden or relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of our Donavon Brewing wine-beer hybrid.

CATHERINE VILLA

Manager of operations
Donavon's granddaughter

Due to fortunate timing, Catherine became involved in the family business from the beginning. Catherine earned a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and had planned to pursue a career in renewable energy. However, she was offered the chance to build and manage a brewery in honor of her late grandfather. Catherine is excited to learn as much as possible about beer production, particularly how the industry can be more efficient and environmentally-friendly. In her free time, Catherine loves to take advantage of the nearby Rocky Mountains by hiking, camping, and skiing with friends.
