PNMBR – Brittany

Today’s Proudly Not Made By Robots is a bittersweet one. Brittany has been on staff for two years here at the brewery, working part-time in our taproom. She’s been a beacon of positivity and kindness to anyone that has had a chance to meet her. We’re sad to share the news that she’ll be moving on to fulfill her more-than-full-time responsibilities at her current employer, Zangger Popcorn Hybrids. Nonetheless, she has a great message to share with all y’alls and we still want you to get to know her. We’re very happy for your success, B, and thank you for your time with us. We sincerely appreciate it!

Where did you grow up? O’Neill, Nebraska

What is your favorite SBC beer? It’s very hard to pick a favorite, and it varies from day to day. Yesterday my favorite was Wonder Twins, but today I’ll pick Vanilla Normal Breakfast. My favorite non-SBC beer is Pacifico.

What is your most memorable SBC experience and why? The most memorable was watching my husband, Nick, play guitar in the opening band at Scratchtoberfest 2017. The setting was perfect and the band did great!

What is one hobby you enjoy in your free time? In my free time I enjoy long nature hikes with my husband and two dogs, the more wild the better.

If you had a year to go on an adventure, where would you go and why? I would love to experience and explore the Mediterranean. I am interested in many different cultures and deep history that surrounds the Mediterranean Sea, and would love to learn all that I can of each and every one of them.

What do you like best about working at SBC? One thing I love is who I work for and with. My employers are some of my best friends and I love the dream that they pursued and the Scratchtown family they have built. My coworkers and I are very lucky to work for such awesome people. The other reason I love working for SBC are the customers. We are fortunate to have such neat people walk through our doors and share their time with us. It is an honor to work at a place that brings people together for fun times and great fellowship. (Editors note: THANK YOU Brittany! We are going to miss you tons!)

What is your favorite Star Wars character? My favorite is BB-8. Not only is it super cute, but it has my initials and my favorite number for a name. I also love how loyal it is.

What bit of advice would you give your 18-year old self? I would tell myself to travel and experience the world as much as possible, and to start right away.

What is one thing you would do to make the world a better place? It would be to restore and conserve wild land, for the preservation of life and biodiversity.
