Co-Founder + Chief Executive Officer + “Adventure Guide”
Lara Worm, co-founder, CEO, and self-described “Adventure Guide” of Bivouac Ciderworks, has never followed a traditional path. Lara is a native San Diegan raised in her family’s food and beverage business, however, she wandered “off trail” – as per usual – and went on to pursue a career as a homicide prosecutor in Washington, D.C. After a decade on the East Coast, Lara returned to San Diego and found herself back in the world of hospitality. As an ardent world traveler and adventurous foodie, Lara was first introduced to cider during stints living in Australia and England. Bivouac Ciderworks takes that inspiration from cider culture around the world, but brings a west coast irreverence and style to the traditional drink.
A lifelong hiker and outdoor adventurer, and outspoken feminist, Lara somehow found a way to combine her passion for the outdoors, fine food and drink, and social justice, in crafting Bivouac’s lifestyle brand and craft ciders. Lara embraces her adventure by road tripping across the country with Jamie, rock climbing with her dog Cooper, and plotting her eventual move to Mexico.
