What is your “official” position with Odell?

I am the Marketing and Branding Manager…I do a lot of the communicating type stuff like PR, Social Media, and copy writing.

What is your favorite beer from Odell?

Yikes…it’s really hard to pick just one. I usually bring home the hoppy brews; IPA, 5 Barrel or Myrcenary.

What is your favorite beer and food pairing?

IPA and Pad Thai. Yum!

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

Hmm, I would have to say a Lambic/Framboise (like our Friek)…complex yet still light-hearted and bubbly, sometimes a little sour but also sweet.

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

Craft beer means so much to me. My husband and I both work for Odell Brewing, so it is a very big part of our lives. We met here and brewed our wedding beer here. The brewery is like an extended family. The beer itself is a creative, social, collaborative, expression. It is an art, a simple pleasure in a glass meant to be shared with others.

Really awesome chick with a passion and love for craft beer? OMG, Amanda and I are destined to by BFFs for life. :) (Plus, everyone once in awhile she sends me something special from Odell. Hello, total BFF material)
