The Pioneer Spirit

The Pioneer Spirit

 

We are very happy to announce that Adam Myers has joined our team.  There are now four of us working hard to get you premium quality craft beer as soon as possible.  Adam is a valuable addition to our team, and we’re lucky to have him.  Adam has a wealth of knowledge in the construction, engineering, and craft beer drinking fields.  He’s got an aversion to commas that he learned in the Cormac McCarthy school of writing, but we didn’t bring him on for his writing skills.

Here’s Adam:

Hello this is Adam Myers and this is my blog introduction.  I am 33 years old and a civil engineer by profession since 2005.   I have 2 dogs, 1 cat and 1 girlfriend.  I do enjoy drinking a fine beer.  I love construction and building and I love to build it myself with blood sweat and bad words.  Cody Anna and David asked me to join their team and I already knew the answer but I said “I need to think about it.”  Really, I had to find out if my old lady would leave if I said I want to quit my job and help build a brewery.  She said “Do what you’ve got to do.”  Turns out she was right this is something I’ve got to do.  As has been said previously opportunities like this don’t come along every day in fact I can’t think of the last time I had an opportunity of this magnitude.  I remember the buy-one-get-one-free nachos on Mothers day, that was great but not something really big like this.  The thing that attracted me the most to joining the MHB team is knowing that I would be a part of something – from the beginning – and have a real impact at the ground level.

I like to talk about the pioneer spirit.  My friends and family may be sick of hearing about it but it is something that gives me inspiration to do stuff that normally might be thought of as too hard or not worth the effort.  Frontiersman were really hard dudes (like I need to tell anyone this) and they did some pretty amazing things at a time when there was no such thing as power tools or air conditioners.  I mean we’re talking literally changing the shape of a mountain with a team of mules and a pick axe.  What’s really cool about that pioneer spirit though is when some bad dude from the old days successfully did something hard I mean really hard, I think it inspired his or her peers, neighbors, family, etc. to maybe go beyond their own comfort zone to take a shot at a difficult task of their own.  That’s what inspires me to this day.  And to know that when society sees you try to fix something or do some hard task, and finish it, maybe they’ll want to try something on their own next time.  We MHB folks have that spirit here and that really makes me confident this venture will be a success.
