Thanks to Hannah Soper from Wrightsville Beach Brewery for joining us Behind Bars this week! You can find her at the brewpub near the beach slingin’ tasty suds and amazing, creative snacks.

AT: What’s your favorite thing about bartending?

HS: I really love the camaraderie, community, and team that has been created at Wrightsville Beach Brewery. The level of expectations and standards that has been upheld has made working here a blast. It’s a great family!

AT: Do you have any advice for current or future craft beer bartenders?

HS: Spend the extra two minutes getting to know your guest’s taste. Your knowledge of your product can help a craft beer enthusiast or a beginner find the right beer that enhances the entire experience. There are a lot of people taking a first dive into the craft beer world & it helps them understand that there is something for them in the big sea of beers! Also, your brewer is your best resource!

AT: If you were a beer, which one would you be?

HS: A brut IPA, because while bubbly & unassuming, it can hold its own & its memorable.
