For those of you who follow us, read our content, use our services, and engage with what we do, you may find yourselves wondering about the individuals behind It all. Our “Who We Are” page, says it best. “We’re simple, really. Just people who came together to make it easier for you to get the alcohol you love.” Today, we will be introducing a new team member spotlight series in order to tell you more about the people who make what we do possible. So to kick it all off, I’m Katie, BREWPUBLIK’s summer intern, and this is our team member spotlight series, let’s start with telling you more about myself!
What were you like in high school?
Was anyone really cool in high school? I went to a boarding school in the middle of nowhere Delaware. It was a small school, so everyone pretty much knew everyone. I was very social, more so in my upperclassman years. I was the person that had friends in multiple friend groups, so I was always hanging out with a variety of people which I still try to do today. I was a three-season athlete, but my main sport was soccer so I spent a lot of time outside or in the gym. I wasn’t involved in a ton of extracurricular activities which I would change if I could go back. I guess I was a pretty average high schooler.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
Definitely filming a video for our new company RISE. Abe Paniri had us all cracking up on the team retreat.
If you were to get rid of one state in the U.S., which would it be and why?
North Dakota. I have never met anyone from North Dakota so I’m open to having my perspective swayed. If you type in North Dakota to google images, It just looks so bland and uninhabited. All of the buildings look abandoned and there are so many buffalo.
A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here? And also what’s his name?
His name is Rico and he is introducing himself as the new tenant of the office across from ours. He was so inspired by Happy Feet that he is creating a chain of penguin dance studios all over the world.
