Ann Bobst - Beertender


What is your position with Tin Whiskers?


How long have you worked here?

2 years

What do you like to do in your free time?

What free time?! I also work full-time as a health policy researcher at the University of Minnesota, but when I have a little downtime, I like to try new recipes, go to concerts, and check out the other taprooms in town.

What is your favorite style of music / band?

I tend to be all over the place when it comes to music. Some of my current favorites include Jason Isbell, Frank Turner, Kendrick Lamar, Caroline Smith, and Bruce Springsteen.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?

Ireland. My family is very Irish, and I’d love to be able to see where my ancestors came from. Plus, beer and whiskey.
Besides the basic necessities, what do you need / do every day to make yourself happy?

To say “I love you.” Have a cup of coffee.

What is your favorite part about working at a brewery?

Meeting so many different people and getting to talk to them about one of my favorite things - beer! 

If you had to pick one style of beer to describe yourself, which style would it be and why?

Probably a Hefeweizen. I’m fairly easy to get along with - a Hefe is easy to drink. I have a bubbly personality - a Hefeweizen is highly carbonated. But as you keep drinking, you experience a depth of flavor from the phenols. Once you get to know me, you’ll find I have a lot of varied interests. 

What is your favorite Twin Cities hang out spot?

The Happy Gnome
