Alton C. Shields
– I am a craft beer lover & I am passionate about the industry! I could drink my favorite craft brews everyday for sustenance. Working in a brewery is a true dream come true!
– Experiencing the ABC taproom and our awesome craft beers where they were “birthed” is nothing short of pure delight. I have been coming into the taproom ever since I drank my first ABC beer 8 years ago.
– I was a professional musician/singer for 4 four years back in the day. We opened a concert for the Isley Brothers and we even performed with Mavis Staples & the Staples Singers. Our former lead singer, Crystal Talefero, performs with Billy Joel and has been his musical director for over 20 years.
I’d switch with someone in sales! They get to meet all kinds of people at beer events and if I had to sell something, beer would be it!
I’ve done a 12 hour Ultra run (twice!) It pushes my physical and mental limits, and I love that! I try to do the same race annually.
I can name my entire kindergarten class alphabetically by first name
Moving to Atlanta and seeing all of the craft breweries here, I started trying and finding things I liked. I got deeper into the industry when we had a growler store and it exposed me to even more great beers and I was hooked!
I was a figure skater before high school and won a few gold medals!
Stouts and porters. Yes, even when it’s hot out.
I try to keep many “embers in the fire” so something can catch the blaze. Graduate School and homesteading take up most of my time.
Bonfire with some lovely people who can join in on the drum circle and howling at the moon.
Baked Goods Blueberry Lemon Cobbler, it’s very refreshing and unlike any other beer I’ve ever had!
I am a graphic designer by day, with a specialty in illustration! I love all things art, yoga & hiking.
I’m originally from Kentucky & I was raised on a cattle farm. Fun fact, I met Larry David at the Kentucky Derby!
