Brew on Premise Brewer/Draft Beer Manager/Bartender/Hop Gardener

Favorite beer style: Nattie Ice mixed 50/50 with Backyard IPA, salt the rim and a slice of lime.

First beer experience: My dad lined all six of us up (I have 5 siblings), and made us all try a sip of beer. I think I was about 10 years old, and I was the only one who liked it.  

How did you end up at SBC?: When I came off Active-Duty Army, I was looking for a bartending gig in the area and when I applied here, Barry Johnson asked me if I knew how to drive a forklift. Next thing I knew I was doing beer transfers, then showing customers how to make beer. A thousand brews later, and here we are.

When you started at SBC: February 2009 

Favorite part of working for a brewery: It’s like a big family. 

Favorite activity: Fishing. 

Favorite location ever visited: Not my favorite, but most memorable was spending three years in Iraq.
