We are uber excited to welcome two new Beer Geeks to our Beer Shop. A brief story about Amanda & Willis:
Give us the Important Details
Hi! I’m Amanda! I like explanation marks and emojis. 🤷🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ I’ve lived in Maine my entire life except a few months that I am still working on forgetting. I am a cool mom and a goofy wife! I love my family, being outside and beer. But thats obvious, right?
What’s your claim to Beer Geekery fame?
Back in the days of yore, my husband and I courted each other by learning about all things beer and food. At one point we were sitting at the bar at Ebenezers up in Lovell and some random stranger told me to start a blog, I laughed at him and then realized he was right!!! Since then, the blog has morphed into a podcast where I have had amazing conversations with fabulous beer makers, drinkers and supporters about all things beer geekery! It’s been fab and I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me next!
If you get to control the store’s music, what’s playing?
Seeing I would get quickly vetoed if I put on Disney music I always go straight to Johnny Cash!! I turn his songs into lullabies for my kiddos and even quoted him in my wedding vows!!
If you were a beer style what would you be and why?
If I were a beer style I would have to be some sort of salty, sweet stout with amazing label art probably done by Heidi Geist. Those exist, right?? I can be a bit salty, I’m from Maine after all. I am really good at being sweet but am dark on the inside. And I like to wear pretty things and supporting local folks!!
Tell us a haiku!
I like talking. Beer.
Smell the hops, grain and sea breeze.
Made in Maine is me.
We’ve shared some good times
