Meet Jamil Haddad.
In 2013, he decided to quit his job and move back to Batroun to start his own microbrewery. Colonel Beer
The windsurfer turned entrepreneur tapped into a difficult market full force, with passion and perseverance.
Today, in an eco-friendly environment made of upcycled wood pallets and green walls, his project consists of a microbrewery, brewpub, restaurant and beer garden, which hosts events all year long.
Make sure to check out ColonelReef, the beach adjacent to the brewery where Jamil also opened a surf school in collaboration with the municipality of Batroun.
