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 tell you about the man that created most of the core brews you love, keeps the biz running and always has a smile on his face…. co-owner, Jeremy Raub.
When asked the following questions, here were Jeremy’s clever replies.
1] So what do you do here at Eagle Rock Brewery anyway?
I try to funnel the daily chaos into a concentrated laser beam, then I attach that laser beam to the head of a shark. I then try to shoot that laser beam at a moving target carried by an agitated monkey, all while riding on the back of the laser-beam-shark. It’s quite exhilarating and fun.
2] What’s your favorite activity outside of work?
Adventuring and exploring new places.
3] What’s your best memory from your time here at the brewery? Annnnnd Go!
Our very first brew day! It was such a long and tedious process to get all the licenses and permits and to build the brewery, so when we finally earned our brewing privileges, it was a huge cathartic moment.
4] What would be your desert island food and beer?
A well-made pilsner and a crispy, thin-crust margherita pizza. And some sunscreen. And a helicopter.
5] Superpower you want to have?
The ability to insert more hours into the day.
6] If money were no option and science didn’t matter; what kind of beer would you make?
Fizzy Lifting Beer…kinda like Willy Wonka’s version, but beer instead of soda
7] If you could get rid of all of the songs from a particular singer, whose would you delete and why?
I wouldn’t, because as a wise man once said: The world don’t move to the beat of just one drum…What might be right for you might not be right for some.
8] What’s the best place you’ve traveled and the strangest thing you saw while there?
Bali is one of the best and most beautiful places I’ve travelled, and that’s where I saw a mola-mola, which is one of the strangest creatures I’ve ever seen.
9] Top three favorite breweries (besides where you work) and why?
Anchor Brewing, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Stone Brewing. Because they have all managed to grow and innovate in a way that didn’t compromise the quality of their beer or the integrity of their companies.
10] Where IS Waldo?
He’s right behind you!!!!!
