Meet our Team: Brad Johnson, Lead Bartender
As we continue to share the faces and stories of our team members, we can’t help but appreciate their dedication shown during this pandemic. They are truly the lifeblood of Dorchester Brewing Company as we make our way through this challenging time. To that, here’s another Meet the Team Blog post, introducing Brad Johnson, one of our kick-ass Lead Bartenders, helping to make your experience at DBco as awesome as possible!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I grew up in South Carolina, but moved to Boston for work after I graduated from Clemson. I spend my free time mountain biking, streaming on Twitch, and appreciating craft beer. I have lived in Boston since 2017 and fell in love with the city. I ride my bike everywhere so please say “hi” if you see me!
How did you get into craft beer and bartending?
I started at DBco part time as a door person while I was doing sales. It’s been such a fun place to work that when the expansion opened up I took the full time position bartending.
What do you like best about the industry?
The people! Everyone is so fun and passionate about what they do. Boston is a great place for microbreweries and the energy is contagious.
Favorite part of your job
Introducing people to beer. Lots of people come in not knowing much about beer. It’s always great to pass on knowledge and get others as excited about brews as I am.
Favorite beer style?
Juicy New England IPAs, all day, every day!
Favorite DBco beer?
Clapp’s Cream Ale. I know the Lightyear Journey fits my favorite style description but Clapp’s Cream is nearly a perfect ale.
Favorite M&M BBQ item?
Brisket dumpster fries! No contest.
