Volunteer Spotlight – Episode 3 Jeffery Sailer

Volunteer Spotlight – Episode 3 Jeffery Sailer

My name is Jeffery “Popeye” Sailer, an avid cyclist from Carrolton. How did I find the Mecca of craft beer? I was involved in a group of cyclists that starting riding bikes to the new craft breweries popping up in DFW. Mainly in Dallas, then one Saturday we did a double barrel tour in Fort Worth. We started with lunch at Angelo’s BBQ, then rode to Rahr and then to Martin House. When I first walked into MHBC I knew I was home. You see I grew up in southwest Fort Worth and standing at that back door with a glass of Imperial Texan and that skyline that is all I needed to be hooked on MHBC. I also have confession to make I am a Volunteer Addict. I volunteer for everything from Boy Scouts, Concessions for HS band to all of the Beer Festivals. So what did it take for me to start volunteering at MHBC? Not that difficult, just went up front and asked Asa, who ran the tours at that time, if I could volunteer. I told him I loved craft beer and was a professional volunteer. That is all it took, been coming back ever since. After having attended most of the Brewery tours I can tell you MHBC is still the best tour around. I am not a young pup like most in craft beer, but MHBC makes me feel young again, so to Chelsea and the great crew at MHBC thank you for taking me in. So next time you are in Funky town come on by and tell me how great my...

Volunteer Spotlight – Episode 2 – JAK and Karla

Can you believe you have seen our smiling faces at almost every tour for the last 18 months? Might as well get a little closer to us, we aren’t going anywhere…we’ve already probably shared a beer or two with you. We are Jak and Karla veteran volunteers here at Martin House Brewing Company , our happiest place on earth.  We have been happily married for over 18 years and have two dogs & one cat as our fur babies. Jak started really getting into craft beer a few years ago and spent many nights trying to convince me that the beers my daddy drank are not the beers crafted today. Finally I had a sip or two and off I went drinking any stout ,bock, porter or other dark beer I could find . Now, we base our vacations off of what breweries are going to be near where we want to go. Isn’t love grand?!!! The love and care that MHBC put into every batch of their delicious nectar is one of the reasons we continue to come back and sing their praises every chance we get. We love this place and we want you to love it to. We try to make every tour the best tour ever,  one you will  tell your friends about. So come on down don’t be shy let us pour you a beer but watch out Jak is a hugger, especially when he is wearing his PINK HAT! If you would like to join our volunteer crew, email: info@martinhousebrewing.com ...

ChPena, Chizy P, Peeners, or plain ol’ Chelsea

What up, Fort Worth?! I’m Chelsea, or Peeners, or ChPena, or Chizy P, or the Brewery Mom to some. I am the newest, and FIRST, female hire, and I serve as the Event Coordinator at this great establishment. I am a tomboy at heart and grew up with 2 older brothers who never took it easy on me in little ol’ Red Oak, TX. I am a HUGE animal lover. My friends joke and say that I have “animal radar” and will find and pet any animal in a 1 mile radius. I played every sport you can think of growing up and finally realized that my true love was volleyball. I made my way through college playing volleyball and trying to not get caught partying on the weekends by my coaches. Martin House took this to mean that I could hang with the bros and keep them in line, I guess. I started volunteering in April of 2014 at Martin House and fell in love with the amazing group of people working here. It was truly like being welcomed into a new beer-loving family! I came here knowing very little bit about craft beer, except that I liked it. I learned to choke down Bud Light back in the day since my brother was a sales rep and I was a poor college kid who would drink anything thrown her way. One day, after years of growing up in a small town drinking “beer” at field parties and backroading, my dad wanted to share a beer and “talk”. He handed me a Shiner and that was my gateway into...
