Is it weird to do a write up about yourself?
Yes, yes it is.
What the hell do you do for DS?
Clean, tweet, reply to your messages on Facebook, buy shit for the tap room, tell people when to work, pour beers when people don’t work.
How many years in the craft beer industry?
I’ve been writing for a beer blog (shameless plug: www.kcbeerscouts.com) since 2014 and have been working in the industry for 2 years.
Where have you worked before and what have you done?
I worked for KC Bier Co as a bier hall server and then handled their social media, donations, and beer labels before coming to Double Shift.
What is the one thing that you can’t live without?
Probably Coke. It’s my biggest weakness.
Like, the soda Coke, not the snorting kind.
Where do you prefer to imbibe?
At the source. Sitting in a brewery with a book is the best.
Or at Bier Station. If I’m not at DS, I’m usually there. Honestly, anywhere with a flight, I can never make my mind up on a single beer.
Who is the one person you wish you could buy a round for?
My dad, who passed away a year ago. Also, Eleanor Roosevelt.
Which Double Shift beer is your favorite?
Sister Abby. Hands freaking down.
Name your top 3 beers:
North Coast’s Old Rasputin, Cinderblock’s Black Squirrel, New Belgium’s Pumpkick
What are you drinking when there isn't beer involved?
COKE. Sweet Tea. Anything with extra added sugar.
If we are talking alcohol, though, I like Gin.
What is your most played song right now?
I won’t lie to you even though I want to; Good As Hell by Lizzo. I’m being very “extra” now.
If you were immortal for a day, what would you do?
I’d jump in to the ocean and swim super deep; just to hit a world record, I’m guessing people don’t know that I’m immortal? Ya, then I’d try to break a world record.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can make a mountain out of a mole hill like nobody’s business.
I can also out-shotgun any frat dude... like, shotgun beers.
What do you do when you aren’t working?
Watch horror movies. Day drink. Make plans and then cancel them.
Do you have any pets?
I have a sweet little cat named Dodgson (named for the obscure character in Jurassic Park. Look it up)
...and yes, I put this question in here just so I could write about my own cat.
What’s one item on your bucket list?
Visit Santorini, Greece.
What would you name your autobiography?
"Bad Dates and Barstools" - I've already thought this through, because I'm a freaking wizard at attracting the most ridiculous of men.
What super power would you have?
Teleportation. Or I would like to throw my farts... it's kind of like throwing your voice, but the smell goes with it. I really just want to be able to blame my farts on other people without getting caught.
What was the last picture you took on your phone?
A LoopVid of my friend and I drinking, obviously.
What movie can you quote the most?
Jurassic Park. Twister. Home Alone. Drinking Buddies.
I shit you not, I can quote every single line in all of these movies, and that, my friends is how you get a guy to never talk to you again after watching Jurassic Park on a first date.
What is the style of beer that you’ve learned to enjoy?
Pale Ales. I started with my own personal mantra “the darker the beer, the better it tastes” – since actually working in the industry, though, I’ve tried to make my palate enjoy more bitter beers.
What was the beer that got you in to craft beer?
The beer that got me in to craft beer? Probably Tall Grass Buffalo Sweat. It was my dad’s absolute favorite beer and I learned my love of beer through him, even if he only drank this beer and Bud Light.
Any last words?
That’s no moon – it’s a space station!
