What is your “official” position with Founders Brewing?
What is your favorite beer from Founders Brewing?
It changes daily/weekly based on my mood/time of year/what I’m eating. Is that vague enough? Ha.
What is your favorite beer and food pairing?
Spicy food and hoppy beer OR Porter/Stout with dessert OR any good beer with good cheese. I love cheese.
If you were a style of beer, what would you be and why?
Some sort of Pale Ale probably…citrusy, floral, but with a hint of bite. I’m probably considered the nice girl around the brewery, but I have a bit of a bitter temper…
And last but not least, what does craft beer mean to you?
Beer that is brewed with one goal in mind: to push the boundaries of what we collectively think of as great beer, no matter how difficult it is to brew, no matter how rare or expensive the ingredients are, no matter if we think there is a “market” for it. It’s about individuality and personality, both of the beers themselves and of the craft beer enthusiasts who enjoy them. I could get super mushy and cheesy and say that it’s about living in the moment, because that’s all we have, so why not enjoy the best beer with the best people while listening to the best music, etc? It is cheesy, I guess, but that’s what gets me up each morning: doing what I can to help educate people about our products, of which I’m very proud, and to help more people enjoy more happy moments over a beer.
