This week, we’re highlighting Jessica Ransom, our Operations and Logistics Manager. She makes sure things come and go as they’re supposed to, from ordering hops and grains, to scheduling deliveries with distributors, she’s keeps everything moving like a well-oiled machine. Meet Jessica- “I first got into craft beer back in college when I experienced my first beer festival in Asheville. It was amazing to see so many people come together around one common interest, BEER! When I graduated from Western Carolina University in 2013, I never imagined my career going in the direction of craft beer, but I am glad it did!
I started at Jekyll as a Packaging Associate on the bottling line. I then moved into an Administrative Assistant position, and then to my current position as Operations and Logistics Manager. I love watching Alpharetta’s own Jekyll Brewing grow and expand into something great. I truly enjoy being able to say I am a part of it.
When enjoying a pint of craft beer I was partial to Brown Ales. Since working at Jekyll, I have expanded my palate quite a bit. Since Tart Vise has arrived it has been hard to stray from its raspberry goodness! When not enjoying a delicious Tart Vise you can almost guarantee that I am spending time with friends and family, whether I am at a concert, football game or the pool. Currently, my family consists of my boyfriend of 8 years, Louis, and our cat, Gatsby, although I hope to grow my family through more cats! Mottos I live by are, “Do what makes you happy” and “All lives should have nine cats!””
