WE BREW LEGENDS

Since December 2014, Alamo Beer Company has proudly brewed the only beer to bear the ALAMO name since the start of Prohibition in 1919. And just like the stories of The Alamo Defenders, the history of Alamo Beer is courageous, independent, unrestrained, and true to itself. 

ALAMO. Fiercely Independent.

Our Crew

Founder

Eugene Simor brought his passion for local brews to San Antonio over 20 years ago, and as founder of Alamo Beer Company, he works closely with several different charities a month to promote their causes alongside Alamo Beer. Eugene is happily married and the proud father of four young children.  When he’s not busy brewing, you can find him sailing and traveling the world.





Brewmaster

Brewmaster Gregg Spickler is a man who likes to stay busy. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Gregg understood there is no knowledge more valuable than first-hand experience. He then traveled the country exploring all things food and drink; from St. Mary’s Resort in Glacier National Park, to 10 Barrel Brewing Co. in Bend, Oregon he would hone his palate and sharpen his skillset from Coast to Coast.

Gregg and Emily Spickler started Monster Kitchen & BBQ catering services during the Eagle Ford Shale boom in Cotulla, Texas while serving as Executive Chef at Los Cuernos Ranch. As the boom subsided, they traveled North to open Hidden Cove Brewing Co. in Wells Maine, responsible for building and executing the food, brewing and sales operations. 

The call of Texas eventually beckoned him back to the South, where his entrepreneurial spirit led him to his next project. Spickler founded Winding Road Provisions in Cibolo, TX. Winding Road Provisions was created to produce, package and sell natural products utilizing the health benefits of bee keeping. As the business grew, product offerings expanded to include South Texas Craft Beer Soap, blending skin soothing honey with the flavorful malts that make Texas beer known the world over.

Familiar with Alamo’s crisp & malty Pilsner, Gregg chose this style for his 1st batch of soaps with great success and the relationship with Alamo Beer Co. and the craft beverage community began to grow.

With his background and self-starter attitude, Gregg was a natural fit for Alamo Beer Co. and joined the brewery full-time in 2018. Spickler is tasked with maintaining the brewery and ensuring the strictest quality standards are followed to produce some of Texas’ tastiest brews.

He continues to bring innovative opportunities to the table, like Southside Bottling Company LLC—a start-up soda manufacturer utilizing regional ingredients, honey & natural lactic acid fermentation. Southside Craft Soda bottled its first batch at Alamo Beer in the spring of 2019 and now has multiple flavors available through HEB. 

As Director of Operations, Gregg plans to use his experience and ingenuity to continue growing the Alamo team and brand in new and delicious directions.

When Gregg isn’t at the brewery, he spends time camping with his family or building upon his passion in apiculture. Winding Road Provisions provides honey bee management services to resorts and hotels as well as removal and relocation services. 


Beer Hall + Event Manager

From behind the scenes, Felicia Steele runs the front line of making sure all of the inner workings of the brewery run smoothly. From coordinating private events and ensuring public events run smoothly from promotion to production, she is the one that "gets things done." You will often see her running from the restaurant kitchen (sometimes even creating surprise brunch specials) to the back office (with a pile of paperwork in her arms), and then emerging from the brewery (giving tours or directions). She brings with her 30 years of bartending and hospitality experience, and loves baking and cooking -- she even operates a cottage industry out of her home. A proud grandma (although don't call her that), she treats all things "Alamo Beer" as family, and is the cog that keeps it turning. She loves country music and the Sour Passion Weisse as a mixer for her favorite beer-mosas.
