It's time to get to know another one of the Bathtub Row employees that makes our brewery the coolest place in town! This time we sat down with Rose—our awesome Taproom Manager. Cheers!
Where are you from?
I'm a Northern New Mexico girl through and through. I was born in Los Alamos, and split my time between here and Central Kansas as a kid. My dad bought a cabin in the Jemez Mountains when I was 11, and I couldn't have picked a better place to grow up. I owe my love of the outdoors to the Land of Enchantment.
What do you do at BTR?
Drink beer! Isn't that what we all do here?!
Oh, wait, I guess if you're interested in my job then the appropriate response would be "I'm the Taproom Manager." I'm the "pint sized" leader of the best bar crew around!
Favorite BTR beer?
Even though the old "blondes have more fun" adage is nonsense (surely us brunettes throw a better party), I'm a fan of the Little Bird Blonde.
What's your favorite part of working at a co-op?
We have an awesome logo, so I can rock my work shirts on my days off without looking like a goon. It cuts down on laundry if I can just wear the same three shirts all the time. Just ask my fiancé, I'm awful at laundry.
Red or Green?
I have to be honest, for some reason the New Mexico chile addiction skipped me. I know, I know, I can hear the hecklers from here. I don't hate it, I just don't put it on every single cheeseburger, burrito, and piece of chocolate cake I eat. However, when I do give it a shot, I go team green.
Where is the coolest place you've drunk a beer?
There are a few front runners—like at the top of the tallest building in the southern hemisphere, or in a bar made entirely of ice (chairs, cups, bar top and all)—but I'd have to say in a kayak, while paddling through the Milford Sound of Fiordland National Park National Park in New Zealand, takes the cake.
What is the most embarrassing song you can sing the lyrics of?
Don't let any girl who was 8-14 years old in the late 90's lie to you, we all wanted to be one of the Spice Girls when we grew up. I could probably still sing their entire debut album.
(I wanted to be Sporty Spice, in case you were wondering)
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
Jennifer Lawrence. She tripped over her dress on live television at the Oscars, twice, which is exactly what would happen to me if I were wearing a $10,000 gown in front of millions of people. Also, she claims "food is the favorite part of her day", and I'm right there with her. People say I remind them of Katniss Everdeen (the character she played in the Hunger Games).
Random Facts About Me:
I've run to the top of Pikes Peak 3 times, I got engaged immediately after bungee jumping over 400 feet, and I got my first dirt bike when I was 6.
One of those is a lie... Come in to the brewery and correctly identify which one and you win!
