Meet the Team

Charles Tope – Owner

Aka Charles, Charlie, Boss Man. He’s the guy behind the vision of PG Beer and the reason we’ll be able to offer a delicious, refreshing local beer to local people (and beyond)! He wanted “a beer you’d be proud to share with your family and friends alike,” because he sure does have a lot of family, and a lot of friends!

Scott Runge – Marketing

Scott has been with the team since day 1 of PGBeer and has helped grow the company to where it is now! With “an existing passion for beer, it’s been an exciting industry to tap into.” Through the process of starting this brand, he’s become an unofficial member of the Tope family. Fun Fact: Scott’s grandfather was a Master Brewer in San Francisco, working for breweries such as: Burgermeister/Schlitz, Hamms, and Lucky Lager.

Justine Tope – Business Development

Justine is a 3rd generation Tope, #8 out of 22 grandchildren, and to some, is known as the favorite grandchild.*
She’s “stoked for PGBeer to hit the Central Coast,” and is looking forward to working with local businesses to get it on the shelves and on tap ASAP.
. . . *per discretion of aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins.

The dogs of PGBeer

Meet Dixie Peach the mut, Duece the Golden, and Blu the Beagle. The official dogs of PG Beer. It’s a ruff life for these pups.
