Volunteer Spotlight – Frank the Tank

Volunteer Spotlight – Frank the Tank

What’s up, my dudes?! My name is Frankie and I’ve been volunteering at MHBC for about a year. I started getting into craft beers around the same time I moved to Fort Worth a few years ago.

My friends and I would go to any brewery in the DFW area to get as many different beers as we could, but for me MHBC always stood out. Eventually the only beers I would have stocked in my fridge were River House (RIP) and the Salty Lady. I was at the 3 year anniversary party when I finally decided I wanted to help my favorite brewery in any way I could. That same night I e-mailed MHBC and before I knew it I was working tours and big events and haven’t looked back since.

One of the best things about volunteering here (besides the beer) are the people and the atmosphere. When I first started I was a little nervous since I didn’t know anyone there, but the volunteers and employees at MHBC are some of the most genuine and awesome people I’ve met. If you’re reading this and you’ve ever thought about volunteering but weren’t sure about it just make the leap!

I’m usually volunteering at the tours as much as I can so come say hi, share a beer and assist me in coming up with mildly funny jokes and puns.

Welcome Shugg to the Team!

Welcome Shugg to the Team!

Hello, world! My name is Shugg. My beard’s name is Jeff.   I started at MHBC on May 5, 2014 and I couldn’t be more proud. Before I began volunteering, my brothers and I would rendezvous at 220 S Sylvania for the weekly tours. We would consume copious amounts of beer. It would be a lie if it said I wasn’t the guy who turned his paper wristband around as I headed to the bar to squeeze out just one more beer from the barkeep. I started volunteering at Martin House the first week of January. For the past couple years I’ve always dreamed of working at a brewery and now I had the chance. I began as a volunteer. As the new year came upon us, I saw everyone setting New Year’s resolutions. I realized I had no defined resolutions, but wanted to somehow join this world of craft beer of which I’d dedicated so much of my time over the past couple years. It started off as an every Saturday ritual, though soon after I began taking PTO days from my previous job to help out. It did not take long for me to realize that I needed to be a part of what Martin House was trying to accomplish – spreading delicious, handcrafted beer to the fine folks of Texas.   While full and ready to take the job of keg cleaner and bathroom supervisor, I was offered a position at Martin House in the sales department. It was the best decision I ever made. Today I report to you today at the salesman/event coordinator/delivery driver/tour...
