Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

When my local shop in Folsom, The Brewmeister, began to go downhill a number of years ago, I had to drive across town to get quality brewing ingredients, so I bought the place.

Why is your staff the best in the business?

We are all experienced brewers, and some of us are winemakers. We understand the progressions our customers may or may not make in their hobby.

Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?

Jimmy Buffett and Sammy Hagar – they created great lives for themselves and their families by doing what they love and never stop creating new ideas and businesses.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

In Folsom, Samuel Horne’s Tavern on Sutter Street – the beer selection is fantastic. In Roseville, Nubbin’s Drive-In on Washington Boulevard – they have great burgers in a classic drive-in setting.

What’s your favorite childhood memory?

Living in a world where kids could ride their bikes anywhere and play all day and parents didn’t have to worry. In Cameron Park, we rode our BMX bicycles everywhere.

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

Samuel Horne’s in Folsom and Boneshakers Brewery in Rocklin. Five years ago, who would’ve ever thought that businesses whose sole focus is on ever-changing beer menus (vs. tap consistency) would be such a huge hit? I love them because I can try something different every time I’m there. I wish I would’ve thought of it first!

If you could be in any other profession, what would it be?

A business coach, which I am considering. I look at the decisions some small business owners make and believe I could really help people make better ones. I really love the nervous energy of start-up operations.

And finally, customer service is…?

The only way to grow and sustain a successful business.
