Have you met spunky, ray of sunshine Hillman Beer Manager Jen Weeks? Here are 4 Fun Facts about her: _________ 1. Are you an Asheville Native? If not, where are you from and what brought you to Asheville? I am not an Asheville native. I was bred in the wonderful city of Royal Oak, MI, just outside of Detroit. After several colleges, I decided to move to Chicago and finish my B.A. at Columbia College. There, I was exposed to the beer world by way of Whole Foods Market. I moved to Asheville in August of 2014 to open the new Whole Foods store on Tunnel Rd. I’ve worked at Oskar Blues, The Funkatorium and now Hillman. The beer industry is pretty rad. _________ 2. What is your favorite thing about working at Hillman Beer? The feeling of family. Being so far away from my family that feeling is something I greatly appreciate. I have gained several friends while working at HB and makes going to work awesome. We have all been learning and evolving together since the inception back in April and I foresee it only continuing that way. YAY Hillman Beer!! _________ 3. What is your favorite Hillman Beer? RAD Dish? Ooooooo, that’s so tough!! Currently, I very much enjoy the Belgian Golden Strong. However, I am known to down the Porter and Biere de Garde. Brad (the brewer) makes delicious beer!
