The person behind the posts... Q&A
Welcome to yet another new Q&A post. Usually, this member of the team would be putting these posts and interviews together, but as she is featured, we thought it would a bit strange for her to interview herself.
Marketing and Social Media manager Charlotte has gotten a dose of her own medicine!
Having joined us in September 2020, Charlotte has taken on a hybrid, all-hands-on-deck role until we are able to get out and about at events. She has fully embraced brewery life and been involved in everything from canning to working in the taproom for takeouts on the weekend.
First of all - what's your favourite Phantom beer so far?
Logic. I miss it terribly.
What style of beer do you want to see more of?
It’s June 21st, what is the first beer you are reaching for and where?
Outside of work it'll definitely be at A Hoppy Place, and if there's Mosaic by Neptune on tap, it'll probably be a pint of that. Something pale and simple around the 4-5% mark, to start off with.
If you were a biscuit, what biscuit would you be?
I would love to say I'm a party ring but deep down we all know I'm just rich tea.
You are creating a playlist for The Haunt, which artist are we seeing most of on it?
It's going to be entirely comprised of Lady Gaga album tracks, B-sides and live mixes. I am a little monster.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Favourite thing about working in beer?
The fact that at its core, it's based around having a good time, and the end goal is to enjoy the beer and the experience with it. It means that even the more arduous tasks or harder times in general at work are made so much easier to handle with that in mind.
What beer destination is top of your list visit?
I would really love to go to Bamberg. There are other cities I'd love to visit that are perhaps a bit more fast paced and hyped up, but I would love to take a relaxing break and have a properly empty brain.
Who let the dogs out?
What's a dog?
What do you want to see more of in the beer industry?
I want more accessibility for education on beer (we're seeing some more work towards this already, which really makes me happy) - I think lots of people are scared of sounding stupid, being shunned or laughed at for not knowing specific terms or processes in brewing or tasting of beer. Generally speaking, a bit more open-mindedness will help absolutely everyone and keep the industry thriving.
Did someone say.... beer?
Does the pope shit in the woods?
With any luck, we'll all be able to get out to beer festivals and events as soon as possible. When you do, you'll be sure to see Charlotte about, most likely with a pint in her hand!
