MEET THE TEAM

Employee Highlight

Say hello to our Warehouse Manager, Alexsa Gallardo, who has been a valuable member of our team since January 2022. According to her, her favorite aspect of the job is “delivering happiness! I mean, people love beer and  beer makes them happy and we give them beer, who wouldn’t love that?!” Team dynamics, she explains, is why she loves working here so much. “I love it here because of the team, great communication, and the willingness to step up and assist others”. When Alexsa is not managing the warehouse, she can be found enjoying her favorite hobbies which include going to the beach with her two daughters, Charlotte and Olivia, and watching fail videos that make her laugh. While she claims to be a 2-3 on a scale of 1-10 for humor, we disagree given her answers to the following questions: If she could do anything for a day, she would be a pro stunt driver with the “Baby Driver” soundtrack playing on a loop. If she were a superhero, her superpower would be to “eat without getting fat”, and if she were stranded on a deserted island, the three items she would take with her are a lifetime supply of salami, cheese, and wine. We think that’s pretty darn funny! But then she shared a joke: “what does the buffalo say to his son when he drops him off at school?…. Bison.” *crickets*….So there’s that. (Just kidding, it’s pretty funny) In addition to her skills as a Warehouse Manager, Alexsa speaks two languages; English and Spanish. We are proud to have Alexsa as a part of our team and grateful for her contributions to Islamorada Beverages.

MEET THE TEAM

Employee Highlight

Meet Marissa Witte, our beloved Bartender and Assistant Manager at Islamorada Brewery & Distillery Fort Pierce. Marissa joined our team back in November 2020 and quickly became a staple in the bar, bringing a smile to every customer’s face with her warm personality and infectious laughter. Her favorite thing about working for Islamorada is the opportunity to work for a growing, local company and having the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. When she’s not making drinks and cracking dad jokes, Marissa can be found enjoying life out on the crystal-clear blue waters of the Florida coast, drinking rum runners,  and relaxing with a good book under a shady palm tree. If she were ever stranded on a deserted island, Marissa would bring a fuzzy blanket to stay cozy, delicious snacks, and iced coffee to enjoy. If she were a superhero, her power of teleportation would allow her to travel more frequently so she could come and go from her private island whenever she wished and also travel anywhere else in the world she had an interest in spontaneously visiting. One thing she couldn’t live without is chapstick, which she swears by. Her favorite Islamorada product is the Islamorada Vodka, which she loves in her signature espresso martini. With a self-rated sense of humor at a 6, Marissa’s original joke is “What’s Mario’s favorite type of pants? Denim Denim Denim”.  Fun fact about Marissa? She has a twin sister who brews beer in Cincinnati. Marissa is truly one of a kind, and we are grateful to have her on our team.

Say Hello to
Rich Daniels

Rich works as a Spirit Guide down at our Islamorada taproom. One of Rich’s favorite aspects of working at Islamorada Brewery & Distillery is making people happy. He loves meeting and talking to all the interesting people who come in to try our spirits and thoroughly enjoys watching their reactions as he turns the blue hue of our Hibiscus Gin to bright pink. Rich is a military veteran who came from a high-stress environment working as a Certified Emergency Manager.  These days he embraces the Island State of Mind®, tries not to let things bother him, and lives a stress-free lifestyle. Rich enjoys cycling and scuba diving around the FL Keys in his spare time. We asked Rich, what are three things to take on a deserted island? Rich said, “A companion, a lot of food and cold drinks, and a boat to get off the Island.” Cheers to you Rich, thank you for being a great member of our team and bringing joy to all the people you have served.

MEET THE TEAM

Employee Highlight

Meet our employee spotlight, Gianna Polito is an integral part of our team at Islamorada Beverages, working in business development and building relationships with our clients throughout SE and SW Florida. One of Gianna’s favorite aspects of her job is having the opportunity to travel and see different places throughout the state while working on building accounts with great local businesses. In her free time, Gianna enjoys staying active with hobbies like kickball, fishing, taking “hot girl walks”, and playing with her new golden doodle puppy. When asked what she would bring to a deserted island, Gianna wisely chose a fire starter, a bag of potatoes, and a water purifier. If Gianna was a superhero, she would choose the power of teleportation, so she could easily check off items on her bucket list, like visiting Thailand. Gianna’s favorite Islamorada product is our refreshing lavender lemonade, and she also enjoys the Pineapple Mango Vodka made exclusively for Snook Inn, a contract distillation she is very proud to have been a part of. We are grateful to have Gianna on our team and appreciate all the hard work she puts in for Islamorada Beverages.

Say Hello to
Mr. Patrick Barnes

Patrick Barnes came to us after  what amounts to nearly a lifetime of brewing experience. Raised in D.C., he began his Brewer’s journey while still in high school with his friend (don’t worry, his dad helped and supervised as an of-age adult). He and his friend continued brewing throughout college at the University of Mary Washington where Patrick double majored in Economics and Business. After graduating, he continued his passion for brewing at two northern breweries before being recruited by the president and co-founder of Islamorada Beverages back in 2016. Patrick helped spearhead the build out of the Fort Pierce production facility and, to this day, never ceases to amaze with his knowledge and ingenuity. As for his future at Islamorada Beverages he states, “I look forward to the day I see our beer on shelves up north when I visit home to see my parents”. Nicely said, Patrick….us too!

HURRICANE IAN RELIEF EFFORTS

While both of our locations were graciously spared the effects of Hurricane Ian, our counterparts on the other side of the state were not as fortunate. Having endured our fair share of natural disasters, our hearts go out to all those suffering from Ian’s devastation and wading through the aftermath. So, to help those affected, we have joined Big Storm Brewery’s effort in providing assistance and supplies to those who need it the most right now. We will be collecting donations at the Fort Pierce Taproom located at 3200 Saint Lucie Blvd in Fort Pierce, FL, and the Islamorada Taproom located at 82229 Overseas Highway Islamorada, FL to help Big Storm in its goal to support the clean-up and recovery efforts and provide supplies to residents, first responders, and linemen. All Floridians are called upon to act quickly to help deliver some relief for families and businesses that have been affected. Items needed are:

 

Garbage bags – Cleaning supplies such as brushes and sponges – Peroxide or anti-mold products – Bleach – Gloves (both surgical and yard/utility) – Plastic tubs – Gas cans – Bungee cords – Rakes – Yard tools – Tarps – Button cap roof nails – Chain saws – Blowers – Generators – Damp rid – Socks – Nonperishable foods such as canned tuna, peanut butter, and jellies (to help feed volunteers and recovery personnel) – Bottled water

Please do not bring items of clothing other than what’s listed above – it’s cleanup and recovery these communities will need help with first. 

GHOULS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN!

 

Pumpkey Is Just The Thing To Spice Up Your October

One of the guiding principles of the USA Spirits Ratings competition is that all spirits that receive medals in the competition should be those that consumers actually want to buy, whether it is shopping for a spirit at a retail liquor store, or ordering a spirit off a bar menu. The judging panel included spirits industry professionals with commercial buying expertise. It also included professionals from leading retail chains, wholesalers, distributors, specialty retailers, and casual and fine dining establishments. The inclusion of many high-profile judges ensured that spirits that were awarded medals in competition were those with a high degree of commercial appeal.

Key Lime Hibiscus Ale Takes Home Bronze
at the USA Beer Rating Competition
 


In an incredibly competitive field at the 5th annual USA Beer Ratings competition in San Francisco, California, Key Lime Hibiscus Ale won a Bronze medal. All beers were judged on a 100-point scale by a panel of high-profile judges with the extensive commercial buying experience. In an innovative twist on traditional scoring at international beer competitions, the USA Beer Ratings used a three-factor scoring system that took into account factors beyond just brewing technique or overall taste. The total score was calculated based on three different scoring factors – Quality, Value, and Packaging. To win a USA Beer Ratings award you will need to score highly in all three areas of the judging criteria. Islamorada Brewery & Distillery’s Key Lime Hibiscus Ale is available at your local Winn Dixie Store.

MEET THE TEAM

Employee Highlight

Meet our Princeton-Educated, not-afraid-to-get-her-hands-dirty, do-what-it-takes to keep customers happy, Jill-of-many-trades, Miss. Larisa Baste. Since coming on board in the summer of 2016 to pour pints for guests, there’s truly nothing this girl hasn’t done at the company. She started working full-time at the Islamorada Taproom way back in 2018 where she helped with the distillery as well as behind the bar and was quickly given the spot as Islamorada Taproom Manager. She even took a turn promoting our spirits which is how she began experimenting with mixology…so make sure to thank her when enjoying one of our amazing hand-crafted cocktails! By 2021, she filled her days doing a little of everything as general manager of the Islamorada location; helping to organize, plan, strategize, and, yes, making her amazing cocktails when there’s a moment to spare. In her own words, “one of my proudest achievements is navigating the process of getting our top cocktails in kegs and on taps. It makes me so happy to see people enjoying our spirits and having a great time.” These days Larisa spends a great deal of time at the computer crunching numbers and projecting forecasts but her heart is always sitting in the beer garden, enjoying a nice cold Islamorada Beer.

September Newsletter 2022

 



HELLO, FALL!

Oktoberfest

The smell of fall is in the air once again and your seasonal fall favorite, Oktoberfest, is coming back on tap exclusively to Islamorada Brewery & Distillery taprooms. After taking home gold at the 2021 Best Florida Beer Oktoberfest Awards, we couldn’t wait to brew this one again. Oktoberfest will be making its 2022 debut early in the month so make sure to plan a visit to Islamorada or Fort Pierce this September to have a pint or stop by for half-off growler fills every Tuesday. You can also join us in Islamorada on October 1st for our Dogtoberfest celebration in the Florida Keys. Bring your pup and your peeps to chill at Islamorada Brewery & Distillery for this year’s celebration of Oktoberfest! Come ready to win our silly “Top Dog” Olympics, then stick around for live music by the Lower Mat Cats and our Oktoberfest costume contest. 

Labor Day

Labor Day marks the official end of summer (even though summer still has 21 calendar days left) and signals that it’s time to get serious. School’s starting and there’s a sense that summer vacation is over. But that’s not what it’s really about and here at Islamorada Beverages, we don’t believe that there IS an end to summer. What we do believe in, though, is celebrating our amazing staff and their efforts to make our beers tasty, our spirits smooth, our reach far, and our image engaging. Since our very first brew, our dedicated and hard-working staff have endeavored tirelessly to elevate Islamorada Beverages and they continue to astound us with their dedication everyday. Thank you, sincerely, to each and every one of you….now get out there and celebrate An Island State of Mind® the best way you can!

MEET THE TEAM

Employee Highlight

Meet treasure coast native Paul Whitney. Paul joined our team back in December 2019 as a packaging hand having no prior experience in the brewery production industry. Due to his inherent interest in mechanics and overall brewery operations, Paul quickly moves up the ranks as a filler operator and now works as the packing manager at our Fort Pierce production facility. Paul’s favorite part of the day is the end of the day when he can relax and enjoy his well-earned shift beers and reminisce on the hand he plays in making a quality product he’s truly proud of. His favorite beer is our Nested Reel (Kettle Hopped Sour Ale). Cheers to you Paul and all the hard work you put in for Islamorada Beverages!
