We realize that many of you are awesome supporters of our brewery and most likely know everyone in our very small staff. BUT, for those of you that maybe haven’t seen all the faces here, and even for those of you who do…. we want to introduce you to each person. Maybe find out a few things you never knew and a bit more about what they enjoy outside of the brewing world.
So to continue the series we are going to introduce you to our head brewer, Erick Garcia.
When asked the following questions, here were Erick’s well-thought out replies.
1] So what do you do here at Eagle Rock Brewery anyway?
Director of Microbiological Research… or Head Brewer.
2] What’s your favorite activity outside of work?
Exploring Los Angeles with my fiance. She’s always scouting out fun spots.
3] What your best memory from your time here at the brewery? Annnnnd Go!
Our last anniversary party (3rd) was awesome! It is humbling to see so many people come out and celebrate with us!
4] What would be your desert island food and beer?
If it’s a desert island… it’s gotta be hot so I’ll say german pilsner and mussels.
5] Superpower you want to have?
The ability to fly so I can get off that desert island!
6] If money were no option and science didn’t matter; what kind of beer would you make?
I’d have someone build a time machine so I could travel back in time to brew some porter with George Washington.
7] If you could get rid of all of the songs from a particular singer, whose would you delete and why?
Florence and the Machine… enough said.
8] What’s the best place you’ve traveled and the strangest thing you saw while there?
Well, Brussels is near the top and it’s kind of odd that the Manneken Pis is such a huge tourist attraction.
9] Top three favorite breweries (besides where you work) and why?
Sierra Nevada, Anchor, Firestone Walker… they all make fantastic beer and rarely have I had one of their products that I didn’t like.
10] Where IS Waldo?
probably hiding out in a cabin… trying not to be found.
