It’s time to jump into the brewpub side of Victory to meet another member of our team. Meet Steph, Victory’s restaurant administrator. She’s the one responsible for making sure all of our new restaurant employees complete their training and prepare for great customer experiences ahead! If you’ve visited our brewpub, you’ve probably seen Steph bartending, serving or, most recently, behind the host stand.
Q: How long have you worked here at Victory?
A: I’ve worked here for a little over 5 years. I started hosting in the restaurant when I was still in high school.
Q: What is the best thing about your job? And the worst?
A: The best thing about my job is working with people who are really passionate about what they do, and working with customers in the restaurant who are truly excited to be here.
There’s really not anything about my job that I hate. I guess the worst part might be when I’m bartending and have to make 15 samplers all at once while keeping track of all of my other customers. I actually end up liking that part though, because it’s kind of like a game.
Q: What was the worst job you ever had?
A: I haven’t had any jobs that were too awful, but the worst would probably be waitressing at a certain restaurant that required me to line dance to country music… I didn’t stay long!
Q: Tell me something about yourself that no one would know just by looking at you.
A: I play piano and guitar!
Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
A: I wanted to be a marine biologist. My dad told me to answer that way when I was young because he thought it was funny. I eventually just went with it. I’m still not entirely certain what that job entails.
Q: What do you miss most about being a kid?
A: I used to spend summers living at my dad’s house in Virginia, so I guess that’s what I miss most. It was nice being able to live somewhere different for a couple of months out of the year.
Q: If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
A: I would go to the future, maybe 200 years from now, just to see what people are up to!
Q: Finish this sentence: Beer is…
A: … awesome. I don’t think you need to say anything more than that!
Q: What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
A: This is slightly embarrassing, but I may be a Taylor Swift fan. So it’s probably one of her songs.
Q: What is your favorite line to quote from a movie?
A: “You know, I thought I had mono once for an entire year. It turned out I was just really bored.” – Wayne’s World
Q: What is your favorite Victory beer and food pairing?
A: Braumeister Pils and a taco on Mondays in the brewpub!
Q: If you knew the world was ending, what would you do differently?
A: Travel! I would want to see the world before it was gone.
Q: If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
A: I would go with flying. There are so many perks.
Q: Which celebrity do people tell you that you resemble?
A: Chanel “West Coast”
If I ever laugh like her, someone please slap me.
Q: Who is your celebrity crush?
A: Charlie Hunnam, but it’s a love-hate relationship while watching Sons of Anarchy.
Q: What would you name the autobiography of your life?
A: Being Awesome.
