BeerTender Tuesday #3: Shan

What do you do at Joyride?

Beertender extraordinaire, talk smack, make it rain joy, spin fanciful tall tales of Brad’s history as a member of a competitive accapella team… Basically I just have a great time and bring the bubbly goodness to the people.

Where are you from, and when did you move to Colorado?

Originally from Texas… REMEMBER THE ALAMO!!!! Moved to Colorado 14 years ago and I ain’t looked back.

Why did you move to Colorado?

See above… kidding… I moved to Breck to ski for a season and couldn’t bring myself to leave.

What did you do before Joyride?

There is no life before Joyride.

What’s your favorite thing about working at Joyride?

I can’t think of a thing I don’t like about working at Joyride. The BEST thing would have to be a three way tie between the awesome people I work with, the awesome customers, and the awesome BEER.

What do you like to do for fun when you’re not working?

I’m lucky that Denver has so much to offer and I take advantage of all of it. Live music, live comedy, amazing restaurants, incredible hikes and scenery, I am ’bout it all.

What’s your favorite type of music/band?

Anything you can tap your toe to.

You’re stuck on a desert island and can only drink one style of beer for the rest of your life. What is it?

IPA, all the way.

Favorite place you’ve ever visited?

I’ve traveled a fair bit. I lived with families in Spain and Costa Rica when I was a kid, studied in Italy and France in College. My dad took my whole family to Amsterdam when I was 19, which proved to be an interesting choice. I’ve been all over, but the coolest thing I’ve ever done was spend a week scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef.

When can people normally find you at Joyride?

You just call out my name, I’ll come runnin’. You got a friend.
