Our People

Ari Starr

Territory Manager - GTA East

Ari is one of the founding members of Spearhead, as an OG, he can confidently state that since its launch, Spearhead has been one of the most adventurous breweries in the Ontario market. While assisting in the first homebrew that would one day become Hawaiian Style Pale Ale, Ari helped to get Spearheads first beers off the ground; often literally…with a mop.

Tom gets all the credit for perfecting this unique brew’s recipe, and these days, Ari tries to avoid getting in the way at the brewhouse, and instead sticks to spreading the Spearhead gospel all over Toronto.

His favourite part about working at Spearhead is talking about our Beer Without Boundaries all day, and all night. Aside from preaching about his all time favourite beer (you guessed it- the HPA) it’s also how he met his beautiful wife, an early Spearhead adopter.

Prior to being a beer enthusiast, Ari was the International Business Affairs Manager at an Indie record label. It was a blast, but he has far more fun marketing an artisanal product that he lent a small hand to create. As he puts it, great craft beer is here to stay, and it certainly can’t be downloaded (yet!).
