Bluejacket Moving On Without Head Brewer

Bluejacket Moving On Without Head Brewer

Megan Parisi is no longer the head brewer at Bluejacket, as the two have amicably parted ways only three months after the brewery’s official opening.

With Bluejacket set to open next week as the fifth brewery within the District since 2011, this ride is about to get a facelift.
