Title: Beertender

Nick Name: (open to suggestions)

Favorite Hydra Beer: Always the one I get to try next. But on a standing basis? Brewmortal. It’s a combination of both my downfalls.

When I converted to craft beer: After art beer. (But seriously, as soon as I was old enough to procure it for myself. I’ve always loved trying new stuff.)

Favorite part of my job at Hydra: I get to work with beer, and talk about beer, and be a part of an amazing group of people. So..all of it. (Except, obviously, cleaning the bathrooms.)

Other talents: I’m a linguist. I speak English, French and Spanish and I can read Cyrillic and Arabic, but my mother-tongue is sarcasm. Also I play the violin.

Guilty pleasure/s: Drinking a lot of beer and watching baseball. And coffee. And cheese.

What’s in my fridge: Surly Furious, Hydra Death Breath Mango growler, Ommegang Shadow Brewer Russian imperial stout, Anderson Valley Briney Melon Gose and a lot of hot sauces. Maybe some milk and an egg?

If I was a beer: Which one? Why? I’m a Belgian quad. Small and nice-looking like the chalice I’m served in, a lot of bold favors without too much bite, but not to be underestimated.. I pack a punch!!!

If you could hug a brewer… who & why?: Hands down, Arthur Guiness. I love his beer. Plus, that dude signed a 9,000 year lease on his brewery! He couldn’t even imagine what the world might become in that time frame, but he was that certain there would still be a place for his beer in it. That’s the kind of confidence I want us to embody!

Favorite Hydra Beer: Brewmortal

When I converted to craft beer: I was given a 1-year subscription to a “Beer of the Month Club” as a birthday present back in 2006. Twelve craft beers from all over the country were delivered to my door one a month. Each package came with detailed descriptions of every beer including hop varieties, malt types & flavor notes. Some beers even came with food pairing suggestions. Since then, all I drink is craft beer.

Favorite part of my job at Hydra: I learn a lot, I taste new beers, & the people I work with & meet on a regular basis are great! What’s not to like?

Other talents: Master of the oil rig.

Guilty pleasure/s: Peanut butter filled pretzels, The Cranberries, shower beers & Jameson.

What’s in my fridge: Dogfish 90 minute, Pliny the Elder, Bell’s Hopsolution & Oberon, Deschutes Fresh Squeezed, Grain Belt Lock & Dam, old sandwich meat, ring bologna, coconut oil, leftover baked beans & a couple expired romaine heads.

If I was a beer: A dirty, cloudy, sticky dank Double IPA. Why? I’m unfiltered. I don’t care what people think of me. I prefer to share company with those who possess a well-rounded palate. Too much of me will give you a headache.

If you could hug a brewer… who & why?: I don’t hub people other than in consolation situations. Sorry. I prefer my space.

When I converted to craft beer: Probably Sam Adams Boston Lager

Favorite part of my job at Hydra: Learning more about beer while listening to Metal!!

Other talents: Mediocre guitar player, I can clap really loud.

Guilty pleasure/s: I don’t feel guilty about any of my pleasures

What’s in my fridge: Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, Alaskan Summer and severed heads….of lettuce.

If I was a beer: I’d be Pale Horse because it’s always a good choice.
