Meet Stephanie Meyer, Victory Brewing Company’s Western Area Sales Manager. If you’re in Texas, California or Colorado, she’s your go-to gal for all things Victory! She sees to it that our western friends get the beer.
Q: How long have you worked here at Victory?
A: I’ve worked at Victory since June of 2011, so almost 2 years.
Q: What is the coolest thing about your job? And the worst?
A: The people. Craft beer drinkers are so passionate and educated. It’s a fantastic product. I get to sell Victory beer. I was a huge fan before I even started working here.
No bad parts. I sell good craft beer. At the end of the day, it’s beer.
Q: What was the worst job you ever had?
A: I worked for my dad at his bank when I was 12 years old and answered the phone on Saturday mornings. He made me dress up. I didn’t want to be working on Saturday mornings, let alone for my dad and for only $2 an hour.
Q: Tell me something about yourself that no one would know just by looking at you.
A: I’m an avid Grateful Dead fan. I became a fan after Jerry Garcia died. A friend of mine introduced me to them and took me to a Widespread Panic show and I started getting into the Dead.
Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
A: I wanted to be everything. I had parents that told me I could do anything I wanted. I was encouraged to try everything to find something that I loved.
Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?
A: Somebody else paying the bills.
Q: If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
A: I’m pretty happy with the way things are. I take life as it comes. Just letting things happen.
Q: Finish this sentence: Beer is…
Q: What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
A: Uncle John’s Band (Grateful Dead)
Q: What is your favorite line to quote from a movie?
A: “Once it hits your lips, it’s so good.” – Will Ferrel, Old School
Q: What is your favorite Victory beer and food pairing?
A: Prima Pils and Texas BBQ. Absolute perfection. The hops are bracing enough to cut through the smoke but it’s dry enough not to compete with the smoke. It’s the perfect balance.
Q: Which celebrity do people tell you that you resemble?
A: I don’t think I have one.
Q: What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Q: What was the coolest gift you received for your birthday this year?
