Meet Greg, Victory’s Eastern PA Area Sales Manager. When he’s not too busy being the tallest person at Victory, he’s working to make sure all of our precious liquid finds its way into your hands, and as many hands as possible.
Q: How long have you worked here at Victory?
A: Almost 3 years.
Q: What is the best thing about your job? And the worst?
A: The best is when I see someone’s whole world change after trying their first “real” lager…and it’s a Prima Pils. The worst? Feeling like I’m still working when I’m just out at a bar with friends, but c’mon I sell beer…that just sounds ungrateful.
Q: What was the worst job you ever had?
A: At 15 I worked at a department store (rhymes with Beers) in the video games section, which also meant I worked in the husky boys and girls clothing sections.
Q: Tell me something about yourself that no one would know just by looking at you.
A: I hate cotton balls, not cotton…but cotton balls specifically. I get goosebumps when I touch them or even think about them. It’s an affliction.
Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
A: The next Baltimore Oriole’s shortstop because Cal Ripken Jr. is a god.
Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?
A: Being naive to all the ridiculousness in this world…and Big League Chew, which I guess is still around but I’m pretty sure the original had crack in it.
Q: If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
A: April 22, 1978. Bob Marley and the Wailers’ One Love Peace Concert in Kingston, Jamaica.
Q: Finish this sentence: Beer is…
A: Better with friends, but also fine alone.
Q: What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
A: Pixies – Where is My Mind, tied with Bob Marley – Mr. Brown.
Q: What is your favorite line to quote from a movie?
A: “You serious, Clark?” – Cousin Eddie, Christmas Vacation
Q: What is your favorite Victory beer and food pairing?
A: This changes daily, but Prima and a wood-fired pizza is hard to top.
Q: If you knew the world was ending, what would you do differently?
A: I’d sell everything and backpack all of the National Parks with my wife and dogs.
Q: If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
A: Teleportation. I’m too tall to fit in cars and planes comfortably, but that’s a gimme. The ability to dispense condiments from my fingers is a close second. Which condiments you ask? Pick 5? Mustard, honey, soy sauce, ranch dressing and sriracha.
Q: Who is your celebrity crush?
A: Can it be a man crush? Good. Dave Grohl it is.
Q: What would you name the autobiography of your life?
A: “No, I don’t want to grab that off the top shelf for you; the Sven Chronicles”
