Our latest hire, who will be serving as our Mid Atlantic region Area Sales Manager, is a great example of what it takes. Quite simply, it takes passion for great beer.
Joe Gold embodies a passion for great beer. Any one who has hoisted a pint of quality beer in the greater Baltimore area within the last 20 years has probably met Joe. No, he’s not just a bar-fly, he’s been a tireless supporter of great beer, and now he has a spot at Victory to hang his hat.
Joe discovered better beer in 1983 on a lacrosse (his first passion!) trip to the UK. He returned from that trip with a job as the organizer for Young’s Army. In this role, Joe mobilized folks with a taste for better beer to discover the flavorful ales of London’s Young’s Brewery.
Joe’s passion for real ale led him to be a founder for the Baltimore-based Society for the Preservation of Beer from Wood. Most recently, Joe founded Baltimore Beer Week which had its debut run this past October.
Surely great beer runs through Joes’s veins but don’t think for a minute that we Victory folk are limited in our focus as Joe maintains his role as father and husband, passing on the finer points of lacrosse to his son.
If you’re a bar, distributor, or retailer interested Victory Beer and you’re located in Maryland, Virginia, DC or North Carolina, make sure you reach out to Joe (JoeG@victorybeer.com) and he’ll be more than happy to talk to you about great beer.
