Mr. Beer Brewer of the Month - Robert Lewis (November 2013)
November 03, 2013
Congrats Robert Lewis - November 2013 Brewer of the Month!Hello all! My name is Robert Lewis, I am 24 years of age. I am an accounting major getting ready to start my last year of school, and then after that I plan on getting my masters in accounting. I am currently engaged and I plan on taking the plunge on November 8. Wish me luck! I have 3 pets which are 2 cats and one little wiener named Snitty who I was able to take in from Yankeedag. She is awesome! Before coming to Mr. Beer I was a sad old Al Bundy, selling shoes for the past 4 years. Then out of no where came a great opportunity with Mr. Beer, a job that encourages me to drink and make beer! The best of both worlds.
I have been with Mr. Beer for about 5 months now and I love every minute of it. I would say between what I brew at home and at work I have at least 50 batches under my belt. One of the more interesting things I find about making your own brew is that you will always learn something new, no matter if you are still new or an experienced brewer there will always be that "WOW" factor when figure our something new or make an awesome beer. I am never one to turn down any beer, no matter what, but if I had to drink one beer right now it would be the Stone RuinTen IPA. It's totally delicious, and the hops are really serious! The one person I would most want to share a beer with would be my grandpa in St. Louis, I have not seen him in about 15 years and he has stories for days and can drink for days! For the new brewers out there, all I have to say is brew, and learn as much as you can. The more you know the better your beers will be and the better brewer you will become.
