Meet the Team – Trevor Abel

Trevor Abel


Trevor joined the BLACK PLAGUE Taproom team to help keep the beer flowing and the good times going. Since running the gauntlet, he has expanded his role at Assistant Taproom Manager & Beer Sales Rep. He recently graduated from CSUSM, majoring in communications, and loves telling stories about the Plague Doctor and his experience in the beer industry. Values-based leadership is really important to him. He played a major role in his fraternity on campus and helped support many initiatives to grow their community into a group of conscientious leaders. He is a big fan of craft beer and loves to learn about each beer style and how the ingredients work together to create unique flavors and aromas. When he is not pouring pints, he likes to swim in the ocean and spend time at the beach.
