What started as homebrewing for this Yakima native haphazardly turned into a job opportunity with Two Beers Brewing Co in June 2011. Scott – who had recently graduated from Western Washington University – told his mom about his new passion and a couple connections later was introduced to Two Beers Brewing’s Lead Sales Manager Mark Satterly. After a few conversations about beer and brewing, it turned out Two Beers Brewing needed help with canning as the brewery prepared to launch its new line of 12-ounce cans. Scott was the right man for the job.
Now working as a cellar hand and supporting distribution for Two Beers Brewing, Scott assists in the day-to-day operations of the brewing including working in the tasting room, organizing inventory and distributing kegs to businesses across Seattle. With extensive experience in working for small businesses, Scott enjoys seeing first hand what it takes to run a business and being a part it.
When asked why he likes working at Two Beers Brewing, Scott responded: “Being in a business where I can take part in every step of the process. I get to see and handle all the product and machinery used to make the beer. What’s more is that I take that beer, package it, then deliver it to customers, whether that be individuals or businesses.” He added, “The fact only six people work at the brewery is amazing to me. I know all of my coworkers very well and they are all really cool people to work with.”
In addition to loving craft beer, Scott is an avid fan of football, meaning most days you can find him watching football games, reading up on football news, playing football video games, studying football history – or even just talking football. He also enjoys cooking, whether it be learning new recipes or cooking old favorites. Be sure to ask him sometime about his infamous possum drawings.
