Name: Dawn, Sunrize, Hoppy Chick
Hometown: There are several towns in NY that I consider my “hometown”. I was born in Albany, NY.
How old were you when you drank your first beer?: Just a kid.
What was the first beer you ever drank?: PBR & homemade wine
What is your favorite style of beer?: Depends on the season; Nice, dark stouts in the winter, IPAs in the spring. I love all others in between. Nothing beats a cold beer in the middle of summer.
What is your favorite Porter/Stout?: Homebrewed stouts of course! That way, we can make them the way we like ’em!
What is your favorite brewery?: Hm, that’s a tough one! Troegs makes great beer. Double Barley is fantastic. There are so many great ones, it’s really hard to choose just one.
You’re mowing your grass, what are you drinking?: An IPA or a wheat beer for sure!
Are you a home brewer or have any desire to home brew?: Yes! Never thought I would be, but the science and history of brew making sucked me in.
Do you ever go to beer festivals?: Yes.
How far would you be willing to drive for your favorite beer?: To the moon if it’s worth it!
What is your favorite drinking game? I don’t play drinking games. I like to enjoy every sip.
If you could tip back a beer with anyone, who would it be with? Probably Sam Elliot or James Taylor… someone with stories to tell.
What’s your favorite thing about Brutopia?: Definitely our customers! From the ones who come in thinking they like Bud (challenge accepted), to the most advanced homebrewers, I love interacting with our clientele and really getting to know them.
