    “Chief Optimist”
    After leaving a job he did not find satisfying and taking a trip around the world (see The Poor Man’s Jet-Setters), Conor found his passion to be equal parts artfully crafted beer, inspiring stories, and refreshing experiences. From the day the words “Half Full Brewery” were jotted down in a notebook, Conor has pursued turning his passion into a reality.

    Director, Branding & Customer Experience
    After college Jordan spent four years at two of New York's largest ad-agencies, which proved to be unfulfilling. His path to Half Full was charted via a five-month Thru-Hike of the Appalachian Trail and three months in Southeast Asia. A run on a cold February morning, several beers, and a fair bit of persuasion later he hopped on board and has never looked back.

    DIRECTOR Of Brewery Operations
    Tom, a Mississippi native, graduated Cum Laude from Harvard University in 2002 and has spent the last 6 years at Brooklyn Brewery. While at Brooklyn, Tom oversaw the design and build-out of the onsite Laboratory, witnessed a brew-house expansion that helped propel the brewery from 75,000 to 225,000 Barrels in 5 years, and was instrumental in maintaining all aspects of Quality Control.

    Leigh Ann

    Director of Sales
    All the pictures Leigh Ann submitted for her website bio were taken with celebrities. Where do you meet all these celebrities Leigh Ann?! Anyway, Leigh Ann joins Half Full as our new Director of Sales after a couple of very successful run's with some high profile beverage companies including Labatt, Mikes Hard, and Ole Smokey Moonshine. That's all fine and well, but we're glad she finally caught the craft beer bug!

    Adam used to sell sugar water throughout South Boston. While the phrase "If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere" usually applies to NY, the words ring true for his previous employment. "Hey buddy, ya can't pahk ya cah there!" In his free time Adam enjoys sipping rosé and watching Gilmore girls. He is also pumped to be back in his native CT, and we are really privileged to have him!

    We hired Leanna away from her previous employer when she came to the brewery selling us something we weren't even looking for, which we ended up buying. Yeah, she's that good. Leanna went to USC (not the real one, the one in South Carolina) and in her past life she was a track star, which works out well whenever we make her jog in between account visits, which is usually on Wednesdays.

    Hey homie! After Graduating from Albertus Magnus, Daniela found herself sitting in a windowless office selling skincare products. Shortly after she killed the last plant in the office, she decided it was time for a change. We feel bad for that plant, but we're happy she found us here at the Half Full Brewery. When not slinging beers, Daniela can be found hosting charity pub crawls or listening to Drake, whoever that is.

    Office Manager
    We've been waiting 3 years for Jaime to show up! Her level of organization for all things accounting, bookkeeping and inventory is mind boggling! Jaime is a die hard UCONN fan and when not crunching numbers or rooting for the Huskies she can be found hunting, fishing or caring for her newborn (presumably not while hunting or fishing). For whatever reason, she also wants us to mention that she used to be a teacher. Welcome aboard Jaime!

    McLain (yes that's his real name) walked into the Tasting Room and applied for a job. Lucky for him (or us) he has worked at places like Aspen Brewing Co. and most recently Black Dirt Distillery in the Hudson Valley. McLain is a rad dude. He has run with the bulls in Pamplona, volunteered in Ecuador, and can backflip on skis. He's also a firm believer that a positive attitude and a genuine smile can open doors and lead to opportunities, and he's right, it lead him here!

    Christina is a busy gal. We first met Christina as one of the fearless leaders of the Fleet Feet Wednesday Night Pub Run. Having worked 2 jobs at a time since she was 16, Christina recently found herself in need of a weekend work fix and came knocking. Believe us when we say, we are happy she did!

    Tom signs his emails "Cool Runnings". It doesn't get much more optimistic than that. If you visit Half Full on a weekend chances are you'll get to chatting; ask him about his time spent "living" in Brooklyn. You won't be disappointed. Tom first came to Half Full as a customer and we are beyond excited that he has decided to join our Crew.

    In her real life Ashley is a teacher, which is awesome because we do a lot of teaching here. In her free time Ashely enjoys traveling to cities and finding off the beaten path places to investigate. Oh, and photobombing people who are clearly trying to take snapchats.

    Brian has a lot of enthusiasm, for everything. He was so jazzed up for his first interview here that we thought he had just robbed a Dunkin Doughnuts. Prior to working at Half Full, Brian spent time as a line striper, coffee farmer, boat delivery man, and an EMT. Oh, and 5 unfortunate years in corporate sales, but we don't hold that against him.

    Pounce is a happy dog. You would be happy too if you had people feeding and petting you all day! If you're lucky enough to catch Pounce on a Saturday make sure to give her a belly rub, she will be eternally grateful, and will proceed to follow you around all day!

    From the mouth of Conor to the sentence that follows: “Lindsay knows how to articulate the vision for Half Full 10X better than I do.” And we are happy she does. She was also chiefly responsible for pushing Conor to pursue his passion and open a business that stands for something more. Now, only if we could pry her away from that full time corporate gig ☺
