Dan Yost - Sales

Dan Yost - a.k.a. Yosty

What is your position with Tin Whiskers?


How long have you worked here?

4 amazing months

What do you like to do in your free time?

Spend time with my girlfriend and our kids. Watch hockey, baseball and football.  Smoke cigars, watch horror movies, go to eat in the Twin Cities, pheasant hunt, travel and going to breweries.

What is your favorite style of music / band?

Every kind except Country. I love Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Tupac, and 50s music the most.

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

Germany because of my roots and the history of beer.
Besides the basic necessities, what do you need / do every day to make yourself happy?

I think having a positive attitude and making people laugh everyday is key.  If I can do both, then I am happy.

What is your favorite part about working at a brewery?

I love that I am surrounded by people who generally really enjoy what they do on a daily basis.  Working with and talking about beer all day hardly seems like a job to me.

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

Sour beer.  Now, don't get the wrong idea, but I like this style because I like the look on peoples faces when they first meet me or talk to me, similar to when they take their first sip of a sour.  People might be hesitant at first but afterwards they love me!

What is your favorite Twin Cities hang out spot?

The Muddy Pig
