This has been a crazy summer here at GLB. You folks out there are sure loving your #FreshGLB beers and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to produce as much as we can and getting it out the door to LCBOs, Beer Stores, Grocery Stores and bars and restaurants across the province.
All that takes people. And we have some beauties. We’ve recently added some more talented people to the family and we’d like to introduce them to you now.
Retail Territory Manager
I’m a service industry veteran, who was fortunate enough to own and operate two successful restaurants in Toronto – Beaver Cafe on Queen West and Camp Restaurant in Baby Point. I sold both businesses to be a more available parent to my daughter. In 2014 I was hired by Junction Craft Brewing, where I started on the bottling line, but very quickly moved into Retail Partner Sales. I feel very fortunate to have been welcomed into the Family and the Sales Team here at Great Lakes Brewery.
Favourite GLB Beer: My current favourite is the Beatrix Baltic Porter, which is currently available in 650ml bottles here at the brewery retail store.
Not-So-Secret- Thing: In addition to loving fresh craft beer, I also have a passion for practicing and teaching yoga and pilates. Life is all about balance.
I come from an LCBO background as a Beer Ambassador. Prior to this role my love of craft beer spawned an IG account @LCBOFinds where I try to share the latest and greatest available in the LCBO with all of you. Now I also have the pleasure of ensuring each and every case of #FreshGLB makes it out into the world and into your hands!
Favourite GLB Beer: With Great Lakes being my favourite brewery it’s hard to only pick one, but if I had too, I think I look forward to the release of THRUST! an IPA the most. It’s not everyday you get to taste the nectar of the gods!
Not-So-Secret- Thing: When I’m not dreaming about craft beer I like to pick up the tools and get creative completing minor home reno’s, building decks and rustic chic furniture. If I build it, they will come.
Production – Cellaring
A little bit about me eh…I fell in love with craft beer when I started home brewing in my basement with my daughter… who wants to “be a brewery when she grows up.” I just recently graduated from the brewing program at Niagara College. I love to experiment with different styles, ingredients, also watching my friends and family enjoy my beer is one of my favourite things about brewing.
I really love this industry and being a part of something that brings so many people together. I’m not sure where this journey is taking me but I’m excited to grow my skills and abilities with the great team here at Great Lakes, cheers!
Favourite GLB Beer: I’m hard pressed to pin down a specific GLB beer, people ask me all the time what my favourite style is, but I’m not one to have favourites, I like any style of beer.
Not-So-Secret- Thing: You can generally find me listening to punk, heavy metal and going to see live shows.
