WHAT DO YOU DO AT BISSELL BROTHERS?

I pour beer in our new taproom in milo. I provide a new experience in this area that has been underserved to date, specifically when it comes to craft beer. I engage customers, I get to hear and tell some wonderful stories, and really think I have an opportunity to push a different way of enjoying beer and the way I believe it should be. Outside of work it’s a great way to connect with your neighbors and enjoy beer – and to do that in a way that is good for our community. But above all of it, I get to learn from a lot of amazing people, and that is the most exciting part. Both staff, company, and customers.

HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH BISSELL BROTHERS? 

As a fan first. That’s the 100% truth. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT BBB? 

The why. The way in which the mission is carried out – in every step of the process, it’s doing the right thing instead of the easy thing – it shows in the taproom experience, in the taste of the beer – in every facet of the business. 

WHAT DO YOU DO OUTSIDE OF THE BREWERY? 

I like to think I spend a lot of time in the Bangor beer scene – my exposure to it was through food, seeing all these people help and grow together, and to see a community do it all. I like to go out, get a pint, get to know these amazing people who are doing really cool things – other than that anything my girlfriend asks me to. 

WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSIOn?

a book called old gorgon graham – letters from a merchant to his son. It’s a book I got from my grandfather and it’s a story about business from 100 years ago that is still applicable – because business is just people. I read that book at least twice a year. It helps me set my compass. 

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

SHAPE SHIFT FOR SURE. EXPEREINCE A TON OF THINGS A TON OF DIFFERENT WAYS.
