Dan Popernack


Dan moved to the Philadelphia area 10 years ago from Central PA and instantly fell in love with the region's food and beer scene.  Working in the industry and practicing the craft at home, he developed the concept for La Cabra to share his passion for food and brewing with friends, family, and (eventually) the vibrant beer fans in and around Philly.  He lives in Malvern with his wife and daughter and is greatly appreciative of the opportunity that La Cabra and its fans have provided to him.

Chuck Golder

General Manager - Contact:   CHUCK@LACABRABREWING.COM

Chuck was born and raised in Malvern and is no stranger to Berwyn (Go Pioneers!).  He began his career in hospitality as a bartender and has since held positions in varying facets of the industry.  From the local pub to prestigious country clubs, Chuck has enjoyed sharing his passion for beer and food with his guests.  When he is not on the floor at La Cabra, he can be found on the golf course with his better half or enjoying a game of chess with his son.  Currently residing in Wayne, Chuck is glad to be both a contributor and consumer of the burgeoning suburban craft beer scene.


Jacey Royer

Event Coordinator & Lab Manager - Contact:   EVENTS@LACABRABREWING.COM 

Jacey is originally from the small town of Reynoldsville, PA, where she grew up with her parents and 3 younger siblings.  She attended Penn State University, earning a degree in Secondary Education with a Biology focus, and moved to Malvern shortly after graduation.  Upon moving to the area, she drove the beverage cart and bartended at White Manor Country Club.  That fall, she was offered a position as a Biology teacher and lab manager at The Haverford School.  As a teacher, lab nerd, and craft beer lover, she soon discovered her interest in brewing science (yeast, enzymes… mmm…).  After fourth year of teaching, she turned her sights to the beer industry and began working full-time at La Cabra Brewing.  You can find Jacey multitasking as she pours pints behind the bar, propagates yeast in the brewery lab, and plans parties as La Cabra's Event Coordinator.  Outside of La Cabra, she likes to check out other local breweries, play golf, hang with her pup Memphis, and work on projects around the new house.

John Hearn


Chef John, AKA  JT, was born and raised in Philadelphia suburbs.  JT’s mother introduced him to cooking as a child and he’s never looked back.  He would help her roll gnocchi, stuff cannoli’s, make cream puffs, pretty much anything she’d let him do.  His first job was as a pool snack bar grill cook, when he was 15.  John’s cooking career really began to heat up when he started at Drexelbrook Catering as a banquet prep cook.  Shortly after being higher he promoted to Banquet Chef, and then to Sous Chef; he was the youngest Sous Chef in Drexelbrook history. Around this time, he began to participate in culinary competitions, winning  both first place prizes at the national restaurant school competition. He is the only person in the history of the competitions to win both gold metals.  After a few year of honing his skills, JT opened The Meat House in Chadds Ford; a country style butcher and prepared foods store, before becoming the Executive Chef at Luciens Manor in Berlin New Jersey.  After interviewing at La Cabra Brewing, John made the call, “it’s the GOAT all the way!”
