How did you get started working in the beer industry?
I had just moved back to Florida after working in a lumber yard in Maine doing logistics and maintenance. I stopped by Cigar City Brewing and put an application in with Ole’ Uncle Larry and because of my mechanical skills I started the next day in packaging working my way up to doing small projects and doing logistics. I did a 4 year stint at Cigar City and made my way over to Brew Bus Brewing and have been running the canning line, doing logistics, and maintenance for over 2yrs with them now.
