Today’s Proudly Not Made By Robots feature is that of our taproom manager, Alex Lamb. Alex is an Elkhorn, Nebraska native and has been working in the beer industry for awhile now, first at Thunder Head Brewing in Kearney and now the past year here at SBC. In fact, today is Alex’s year anniversary.
Alex’s addition to SBC has given our production and operations team significantly more time to spend growing our productive output, distribution territory, with more time in our market meeting with customers new and old. He’s a big reason why you’re enjoying more of the Sandhills’ Finest outside of the Loup Valley. So let’s get to know Alex a bit better!
