Q: “If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one item, what would it be and why? And no, unlimited beer supply is not an option!”

A: My pocket knife. I’m pretty sure I could use it to turn a coconut into a fermentation vessel.

Q: “If you could have any wild animal as a pet, which one would you choose and what would you name it? Bonus points if it can fetch a cold beer from the fridge.”

A: Komodo Dragon named Bacon. A lot of people don’t like scaly animals but who doesn’t like bacon? I bet I could teach him to fetch a beer but I’m afraid he would drool all over it.  Now that I think about it, Dragon Drool sounds like a pretty metal name for a beer.

Q: “If you could swap lives with any fictional character for a day, who would it be and what hilarious shenanigans would you get up to in their world?”

A: I would have to say Spider-Man. I would hide and just shoot spider webs in the path of random people and watch them do the spider web dance.

Q: “What beer has been your favorite to make and/or drink?”

A: Hands down Oktoberfest and Munich Dunkel. I love brewing them and I love drinking them. Munich Dunkel has been one of my favorite styles since I was in college in the early 2000s. I don’t know if it’s still there, but in San Marcos we had a convenience store called “The Yellow Store” that had more beer than any college kid could imagine and this was before the huge growth in craft beer. You could probably say that store opened my eyes to beer beyond Keystone Light and Bud Ice. This is where I fell in love with Hacker-Pschorr Münchner Dunkel.
