Javier PerezOwner and Brewer
When he’s not at Cheluna, Javi works as an emergency physician at the Denver VA. After a decade of working in private hospital ERs, Javi transitioned to working for the Denver VA and has found serving veterans very fulfilling. He is ultimately humbled by and grateful for the many opportunities afforded by his innate curiosity and educational attainment.
Jennifer PerezOwner and Manager
After moving and storing Javi’s ever-expanding collection of brewing equipment more than half a dozen times and considering yet another move, Jennifer decided to put an end to the Perez family peripatetic tendencies and suggested they open a brewery instead. Javi took her up on the challenge and in 2014, Cheluna was born.
Jen and Javi are extremely grateful for the support of family, friends, and the many people who’ve helped get Cheluna up and running. The opportunity to be part of the Stanley Marketplace, which feels like home away from home, is the most exciting adventure they’ve faced since meeting and working together over 26 years ago as New York City Outward Bound instructors.
