Mug Shots - Colin Brown
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 Maintenance Mechanic Manager, Colin Brown.
Unlike most, Colin hails from Boulder, Colorado. He grew up with his 3 brothers in one of the most picturesque and desirable places in the US and has no plans to move away – who can blame him! After high school Colin quickly made the transition to working full-time. “My dad is a big resource of knowledge about anything mechanical and that’s where I pretty much learned it all from.”
Before working at Boulder Beer, Colin worked with Timberline Heating & Cooling. He joined the Boulder Beer team in September of 2018 and was happy not to spend the winter on the roof working on HVAC units. Everyone else at the brewery is “of age” but young Colin will soon be turning 21 on June 18th and said “I’m going to be old.” Normally we ask what the favorite Boulder Beer is, but in Colin’s case we asked what beer will be the first one you try. “Hmm that’s a tough one, there are so many. I think I’m gonna have to choose Pulp Fusion, it just sounds really good.” Glad our taste descriptions work!
Colin and his girlfriend Vanessa currently live in Longmont with a whole slew of reptiles! “Let’s see, we have 5 snakes, 4 geckos, 2 frogs, 1 turtle, 1 chameleon, and 1 cat.” When they are at home they let the snakes roam, so make sure to watch your step at his place! In his free time he enjoys playing disc golf and playing drums with his Dad. He has hopes of traveling a bit more and would love to visit Asia, because “it’s just so different than anywhere else.” If Colin is eating at the Pub he’s usually eating a Betasso Burger with Cajun Fries and drinking a Monster energy drink – that’ll change come June 18th!
Thanks Colin, for all you do! We appreciate you!
