Meet Victory: Marisa Egan

Meet Marisa Egan, one of Victory’s Quality Lab Technicians. Her business card reads “Chemist,” though some may refer to her as a brewery nerd. Marisa’s job revolves around quality assurance. She analyzes beer and hops to make sure our customers are getting the most consistent, high quality product.

Q: How long have you worked here at Victory?Screen shot 2013-08-29 at 11.39.48 AM
A: Just over a year, full-time.

Q: What is the best thing about your job? And the worst?
A: The best thing about my job is that I work with what is probably the awesomest, most versatile, most interesting thing on the planet. The worst part is the number of guys that I work with. It’s like having dozens of older brothers that just mess with me constantly, which is not necessarily awful, but I never know what to expect.

Q: What was the worst job you ever had?
A: Hmmm, when I was 17 I worked in a grocery store bakery. It required me to stay in a freezer for hours at a time by myself pulling frozen rolls out of boxes and putting them on trays. I hated it, but I couldn’t bring myself to quit, ya know, trying to be responsible and all. When I crashed my car a couple of months into my job, I asked my doctor to write me a note saying that I couldn’t work there anymore.

Q: Tell me something about yourself that no one would know just by looking at you.
A: I’m an awesome dancer.  Like, the best dancer.

Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
A: When I was four years old, my mom asked me if I would be an engineer (no pressure, right?). I told her, “Sure, mom. I could do that.” Next, she asked me if I knew what an engineer did. I said, “Yeah, he’s the guy that drives the train.” It’s all been uphill from there.

Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?
A: The way time passed slower as a kid. Somehow, I got older and so much busier that I can’t seem to keep up with time.

Q: If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
A: Creation, however it happened. I would like to have been there to watch. Not necessarily to know how it happened, but watching the formation of things is really cool. I suppose that’s what makes me a nerd.

Q: Finish this sentence: Beer is…
A: something that blows my mind every single day…and delicious.

Q: What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
A: I don’t have an iPod, but if I did, I hope the most played song would be “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin.

Q: What is your favorite line to quote from a movie?
A: Right now? I would have to say it’s, “Shit. That is fresh.” – Bridesmaids

Q: What is your favorite Victory beer and food pairing?me and momma
A: It’s gotta be Prima with anything.

Q: If you knew the world was ending, what would you do differently?
A: I’d spend all my time with my mom.

Q: If you could have any super power, what would you choose?
A: Teleportation. I spend a lot of time driving, but I still don’t get to go everywhere I want to go because it takes too long. Plus, I’d never be late. Maybe.

Q: Which celebrity do people tell you that you resemble?
A: I’ve been told I have mannerisms like Chris Farley, but I don’t actually look like him.

Q: Who is your celebrity crush?
A: I’ve been in love with John Cusack since 16 Candles.

Q: What would you name the autobiography of your life?
A: What Day Is It? A memoir of the chronologically impaired.

The Victory Brewing Story

The story of Victory Brewing Company starts on a school bus in 1973 when fifth-graders Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski stepped aboard, on their way to a new school. The two became fast friends and remained so, even as they grew up and went to college on opposite coasts. Just months out of college, Bill’s appreciation of good beer and access to his father’s home brewing equipment inspired him to explore the hobby. That same year (1985), Bill gave Ron a home brewing kit as a Christmas gift. With that, both Bill and Ron developed their love of the craft…
