Welcome back to our SBC feature on the people that make us, us. Today’s Proudly Not Made By Robots feature is Julie. Julie, hailing originally from Atkinson, Nebraska, is part of our ownership circle and the better half of our head brewer, Mike. Julie was instrumental in starting Scratchtown, as she convinced her skeptical husband (along with several beers and Caleb’s incessant badgering) that this endeavor would be a good one. Her alter-ego, Julio, is the spirit animal of fun here at SBC. Without further ado, let’s meet Julie.
