Mug Shots: Meet Bailee Givens
Take a peek beyond the beer you love to drink with our blog series titled, "Mug Shots." There are a lot of folks here at Boulder Beer who play a huge role in our day to day success. This is our way of introducing you to the team that makes it all happen. It's time for you to meet our Marketing Assistant, Bailee Givens!
A Colorado native, Bailee grew up in Castle Pines, CO and has been working at Boulder Beer as the Marketing Assistant for one year! Bailee is a double major, studying IPHY (Integrative physiology) and marketing and hopes to get a job in the medical sales field after graduation.
As someone with a big passion for craft beer, Bailee was searching for a fun opportunity with a craft brewery and met former Marketing Coordinator, Lindey Miller, when they both worked at Whole Foods. Bailee started working events at Boulder Beer and then interviewed for the Marketing Assistant job when the opportunity presented itself.
Spending a good amount of time at the brewery, Bailee has a few favorites! Her favorite menu item is the Firetrack sandwich (grilled chicken tossed in buffalo sauce) and she can usually be found drinking a pint of Shake Chocolate Porter or Sweaty Betty Blonde! When asked about her favorite Boulder Beer memory, Bailee said that tie-dying Hazed t-shirts and trying the experimental brews at the brewery’s 37th Anniversary party was a highlight for her this year.
“I really enjoyed the Peach Pale Ale, Spikeberry Saison, Watermelon Kolsch and IPL at the Anniversary Party,” said Bailee. Be on the lookout for some of these brews at this year’s GABF and the Watermelon Kolsch at Old Chicago locations for their Halloween Mini-Tour! Bailee is looking forward to the brewery’s remodel, graduating from college at the end of this year and attending her first Great American Beer Fest in October!
When Bailee isn’t working at the brewery or pouring at a beer festival, she can be found outside hiking, breaking out her killer dance moves at a concert or traveling. Traveling has been a big part of Bailee’s life and she has visited over ten countries (Peru, Mexico, Germany, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Belgium, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia). Fun fact: she even lived in Japan for a year, when her father Brian, (also known as Papa G) played professional baseball for the Seibu Lions!
All of the Givens currently reside in the great state of Colorado. Bailee has one older brother, named Bryce, who played football at CU and recently joined the Boulder Beer family as a promo rep! Bailee’s mom, Carol, works for the Air Force and lives in Colorado Springs. Bailee also has a fluffy cat named Big Al (named after Albert Einstein).
Thanks Bailee, for all you do! We appreciate you!
