Karen W. Hertz is the founder of Holidaily Brewing Company. In her early 30’s, Karen survived both melanoma and thyroid cancers, leading to a treatment regimen including a gluten-free diet. After adopting a gluten-free diet, Karen struggled to find a great tasting, 100% gluten-free beer. With an MBA in Entrepreneurial Studies from the University of Colorado at Denver and 15 years of beer industry experience under her belt, Hertz created Holidaily Brewing Company. Since opening the brewery in 2016, Holidaily has had exponential growth and is the largest dedicated gluten-free brewery in the U.S. Most recently, the brewery won the Bronze and Gold Medal in the gluten-free category at the Great American Beer Festival and the brewery was recognized as a “Top 50 Fastest Growing Company” in Denver by the Denver Business Journal.
