DRINK WITH THE WENCH PRESENTS:
Behind the Twitter Avatar Series

Are you curious about the men and women “hiding” behind Twitter avatar of the world’s most beloved craft breweries? Well, you are not alone. The Wench has gone behind the scenes to reveal and introduce you to the individuals who possess the ever coveted social media positions in the craft beer industry.

As you can probably imagine, running the social media for a craft brewery can be a tough job for any one person, especially since most of us are also juggling 5 million other hats at the same time. Many breweries already featured have more than one person working behind the Twitter avatar (heck, even I tweet for my boss from time to time). Mothers Brewing has two rockstars rockin’ behind its avatar. Meet the Jeremy and Holly!

Locoation: Springfield, MO

What is your “official” position with Mother’s Brewing?

Director of Sales and Marketing/Eternal Optimist

What is your favorite beer from Mother’s Brewing?

…. always a tough question. I would probably say Sandi. It’s wheat beer made with some unmalted wheat, but we add in grapefruit zest and whole bunch of cascade hops. It’s very sessionable, but packs huge flavor. I can drink that beer (a lot of that beer) any time of the year.

What is your favorite beer and food pairing?

….. another tough question…. I do love big Imperial stouts with sweets like tiramisu, cheesecakes, or chocolate anything.

If you were a style of beer, what would you be and why?

I don’t think I would be an actual style. I think I would be more of a flavor or hybrid style. Something with a big hop bite, yet balanced with soft malt. Maybe even a little spice added in or a touch of fruit. Something complex yet very drinkable. That sounds about right.

And last but not least, what does craft beer mean to you? Craft beer, to me, is a culture based around creativity, innovation, art, fun, sharing and so much more. Craft beer is community and friendship. It is a constant journey to make great beers and make people happy along the way.

What is your “official” position with Mother’s Brewing?

What is your favorite beer from Mother’s Brewing?

… all of them? But if I had to pick one I’d go Foggy Notion, Mother’s sherry barrel aged Ozarks barley wine.

What is your favorite beer and food pairing?

IPAs & spicy anything…Thai, Vietnamese, Cajun, chilaquiles…I can continue if you’d like ;-)

If you were a style of beer, what would you be and why?

Mother’s Holy Mole (chile chocolate ale)… a lil’ sweet, a lil’ spicy & a lil’ bit of an adventure

And last but not least, what does craft beer mean to you?

Craft beer triggers many emotions and memories for me so here’s a snapshot: local, awesome pairings, art, friends, travel, serendipity, family, best career ever and lots of love.

Sad to admit I’ve not yet tried a beer from Mothers Brewing, but after following them on Twitter, I am definitely making a concerted effort to stalk them down! Cheers!
