17 Nov Buzzed IN: Jordan From Chilly Water Brewing Co.
Interviewing Jordan at Chilly Water was a lot of fun. Skip DuVall (the owner) directed me to the perfect person to interview. Jordan is shameless with a good sense of humor. He’s a cook (actually, he’s the Kitchen Manager but he says that’s too official of a name for him). Skip puts up with him because he says he has to since his family and Jordan’s family are friends. I think, deep down though, that Skip likes him.
Me (S): Do you like chips or chocolate better?
Jordan (J): Chips definitely.
S: Who’s your favorite Disney princess?
J: Pocahontas hands down.
S: Why? Why is that?
J: She’s a babe.
S: My husband’s partial to Jasmine.
J: Jasmine’s pretty hot too. Pocohantas.
S: How much do you use Ketchup on a scale of one to five? One being hardly at all and five being you brush your teeth with it.
S: You don’t use ketchup!?
J: No, not really.
S: Like, ever!?
J: No. It was just ingrained in my head never to use ketchup on hotdogs.
S: Are you a mustard guy?
J: Yeah. For sure.
S: So, do you ever dip fries in Ketchup?
J: Yeah, I will. Let’s say one. I guess I can’t say never.
S: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
J: A bug.
J: A little grasshopper.
S: Why? Why’d you do that?
J: Someone dared me. I was a little kid.
S: Was it alive?
J: It was gross. It was cruchy. It didn’t really taste like much.
S: Do your prefer cinnamon, spearmint, mint, or winterfresh? Or bubblegum I guess.
S: Ugh. It’s too minty for me. Ok, mandatory beer question. What beer would you take to a deserted island and it’s the only beer you could drink forever? And this question was submitted by @NotTheRealEarl on Twitter.
J: Old Style.
S: Old Style?
J: Yep! (uncomfortable silence)
S: Ok. If that’s what you wanna go with. Why, ‘cause it’s mostly water?
J: Yeah. I’d stay hydrated and it would remind me of baseball and the Cubs.
S: I think you’re probably supposed to name a Chilly Water beer.
J: Oh s**t.
S: You already said it! Too late!
Regardless of the fact that Jordan eats grasshoppers, he makes good food at Chilly Water. Stop in, grab a bite, and check them out. If you’re a Tasting Society Marketplace member, you get $3 towards the purchase of a flight of four, five ounce pours. You won’t regret giving them a try. They have awesome beer.
