~ Chatting with Heather Hall. ~
If you are a beer fan and have ever traveled or lived in Indiana, I'm sure you've had a beer from Sun King. We make it a tradition when we go to Indianapolis for work. As fans of their beers, we reached out to Heather Hall, VP of Community Development for Sun King, for this week's fun Q and A. We've known Heather for a few years, but learned a few new things.
Enjoy! - Jason Burton
Question from Jason of The LAB:
What do you enjoy the most about living in greater Indianapolis?
Answer from Heather Hall:
There is always something to do in Indianapolis. In the last ten years Indy has developed amazing art, music, and culture scenes. We have great sports teams that include the Indianapolis Indians, Indy Fuel, etc. The food and beverage scene is amazing and with additions like the Cultural Trail and the Canal Walk, we are able to get out and enjoy it all.
The LAB: Would you rather name a beer, or a band? And what would the name of it be?
Heather: Definitely a band. I haven’t really thought about it…maybe Cougars on a Budget. It would be Glam Rock meets Emo.
The LAB: What do you usually eat for breakfast?
Heather: A Lemon Zest Luna Bar at 11:00 am when I realize that it is lunch time. The last minute effort means I am not lying when the doctor asks if I eat breakfast.
The LAB: What would you like consumers to know more about craft beer?
Heather: Consumers should know more about the amazing people that create the product. Our brew deck is a group of clever, wonderful people who put a lot of time, care, and work into making the delicious product we sell.
The LAB: How do you think the way you grew up prepared you for the industry, or job you do today?
Heather: I grew up spending time with an eclectic group of adults. Bikers, bankers, and ballet dancers were my examples. I believe it developed my ability to relate and appreciate people from many different walks of life. I learned that everyone has something to offer and even a bad example has a lesson to share.
The LAB: In two sentences what are your thoughts on social media covering beverage culture?
Heather: Social media has allowed people to be a part of the culture that would otherwise been left outside with the general consumers. I feel like it has made the culture more inclusive, but I think that we all need to think before we tweet.
The LAB: If a celebrity played you in a movie who would it be?
Heather: Amy Schumer. I am not sure if that is flattering for me or for her, but her humor and wit are amazing.
The LAB: That is awesome! Love her energy and attitude. Good pick! Thanks again Heather. See your crew this fall.
