No brewery is an island. Now that we’ve been open for two years we’ve needed some help, and a few stalwart friends have stepped up to the challenge.
These are their stories.
This week: Robert Turley, Assistant Brewer.
Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Robert Turley. I was born in Children’s Hospital in Buffalo and I’ve been living in Buffalo for about seven and a half years. I love beer! I went to school for English and decided that wasn’t really a profitable career choice, so I decided I’d be better off doing what I loved. I continued making beer!
How did you get involved in the CBW gang?
I met Ethan and Rudy working at the Village Beer Merchant when they came to pour samples of what would become CBW’s beer. After that I pestered them for an internship for about six months until they finally let me come in.
What started you down the rabbit hole that is good beer?
I was working as a dishwasher at Pizza Plant. The bartenders there would give me samples of the beers that were coming in, and I developed a taste for it over time.
Duff’s or Anchor Bar?
Ooh, that’s a tough one. Anchor Bar, because it’s closer to my house.
Anything else we should know about you? Any parting words of wisdom?
I am actually 104 years old.
Any other questions for Robert? Leave them in the comments!
