Harmony and Levi met during passover in 1999 on the beach in Israel. Nine years later they were brewing their first beer together. Their passions and thirst for adventure has taken them on many stops around the world -- New Jersey, Atlanta, Israel and Italy -- but their dream of opening a brewery together brought them to Long Beach, Levi’s hometown, in 2017. Harmony and Levi are incredibly proud of the two young teenagers they are raising and believe the Long Beach Beer Lab proves that they too can be the masters of their own destiny.

Brewmaster, Chief Scientist and Co-owner
Levi earned a PhD and medical degree before his exbeeriments became a full-time job. His extensive studies in biochemistry and microbiology empower him to apply science and analytics to the brewing and fermentation process. After spending years in medical research labs, he decided to make a change and pursue something much more rewarding and refreshing -- craft beer. Working alongside Harmony on a business that they ultimately control and own is a blessing and tremendous source of pride for Levi. Come to the lab and enjoy a pint with him, he’ll tell you everything you could ever want to know about the beer you’re drinking and how he achieves funk with barrel character.
