HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, July 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Urban South – HTX is excited to announce the addition of Nathan Garcia to its growing team. Garcia brings more than a decade of experience in staff management, facility operations and program implementation to his position at Urban South in Houston. In his role as Sales and Distribution Manager, Garcia will direct all on-premise and off-premise sales of package products, including taproom release management, in-state retail customers, out-of-state distributor management and direct-to-consumer sales.
“Nate is a self-starter with extensive upper management experience and a passion for craft beer, which is why he stood out as a fit for the Urban South team,” said Dave Ohmer, General Manager of Urban South – HTX. “We look forward to watching him grow in this role and know our partners and clients will enjoy working with him as much as we do.”
Garcia holds a Bachelor of Science from Eastern Connecticut State University and started his career as a Health and Wellness Manager and Personal Trainer on the East Coast.

Garcia enjoys networking and building lasting professional relationships.
“I’ve always appreciated the craft beer atmosphere and the culture surrounding this industry,” said Garcia. “Even before I was working in the industry, I loved visiting different breweries and tasting new beer with my friends. The pandemic changed my career path and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to develop hands-on experience in the craft beer space while building relationships within the local community. My experience at Urban South – HTX has been a great one so far.”
