What do you do at Austin Beerworks?
I’m the head cellar-man. I manage fermentation, filtration, and packaging. But really I’m just a glorified janitor. In my spare time, I’m a brewery mechanic and engineer.
If you weren’t doing this what would you be doing?
Nudie-booth cleaner, also a type of glorified janitor.
What TV show would you like to see ABW make a cameo in?
Breaking Bad, for obvious reasons
If you could brew a beer for a famous person, who would it be and what would the beer be?
Stephen Colbert, and it would probably be our Fire Eagle IPA, but with 50% more Screeee! and dry hopped with America.
Favorite place to have a beer at noon.
Bed and/or shower.
Drinking game you were really really bad at.
All of them, equally. However, I excel at shotgunning.
What is your least favorite piece of equipment in the brewery?
Can-lid dropper. It used to be the DE filter, but then I replaced it with a much more friendly unit.
Strangest thing you’ve drank beer out of.
Diet Coke can.
Which ABW beer would you most like to make love to?
This is a trick question; only women “make love.” But the answer is Einhorn.
What rhymes with deer?
