    “Chief Beer Philosopher”
    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.

    Jen doesn't do the whole “test the waters” deal, she jumps right in. After several career paths did not prove to be inspiring, Jen decided to head off to the Siebel Institute to learn how to brew, having never brewed before (though her grandfather was a brewer). Nearly 15 years later we are beyond privileged to have her.

    “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.

    Jon’s from Minnesota. Barley and cheese soup, ice fishing, jean jackets, you bet’cha. How’d he end up in CT? Jon’s path to Half Full started at Yale and was fueled by the New Haven beer scene. After a two year stint doing Cancer research at Yale New Haven Jon decided to hand in his lab coat for a pair of brewing boots and headed on over to the Half Full Brewery.

    (Andrew) Porter started as an intern here, and yes, thats his real last name. He worked his butt off so we hired him, kinda cool right? When not dominating in the brewery Porter can be found in the great outdoors hunting and fishing. Words to live by via his grandfather? Work hard, drink milk, and do your pushups. Sounds good to us.

    Relationship Manager
    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.

    We've been waiting 3 years for Jaimie to show up! Her level of organization for all things accounting, bookkeeping and inventory is mind boggling! Jaime is a die hard UCONN fan (as you can see from the picture she submitted) 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). Welcome aboard Jaime!

    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; his outgoing personality and sense of optimism fit right in!

    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!

When not working at Half Full, Colleen can be found working as a Production Coordinator for SGA in New Canaan.

    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.

    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 ☺

    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!
