Get to know our brewer, Steven!
Our team has been blessed with the addition of some incredibly talented people over the last few years as we have grown and of those additions, there may be no harder worker than Steven, our left-handed brewer. Most of the time, job applications are less than exciting. However, when Steven joined us from the team at @greatdividebrew, his left-handedness was one of the things that stood out most because well… he… put that on his resume? The rest of the hiring process was a blur and before we knew it, Steven has been a part of our team for more than a year! If you’re attending @otherhalfnyc’s Pastry Town this weekend, make sure to swing by our booth and say hi to this familiar face!
GET TO KNOW STEVEN A LITTLE BETTER WITH A Q/A BELOW!
1) WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO BREWING?
Heavy hitter for the first Q, love that. I’m not even sure my 20 something self knew what we were getting in to, some times you just start heading down a path. I realize that doesn’t answer your question, but every so often shit just happens — serendipity, baby.
2) HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR WAY INTO THE CRAFT BEER INDUSTRY?
Tending bar, chopping it up with the public, that turned into every other job in the brewery; lil sales action, packaging, etc. I think i’m best used as a mash paddle, though.
3) WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT BREWING/BEER?
The gang. It’s a unique camaraderie working in this industry, especially at a small brewery such as ourselves. Yeah we’re snarky af, and sometimes there’s beef, but I love the team.
4) WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD BE DOING IF YOU HAD NOT BECOME A BREWER?
Who knows, I’m still a young man — it’s a marathon.
5) WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING WITH YOUR TIME OUTSIDE THE BREWERY?
Big fan of sleep. Trying new restaurants, reading, drinking coffee, also I think I’m a decent tennis player.
6) FAVORITE BEER OF ALL TIME
Pacifico, long necks. A lime is nice, but not required.
