Clarissa joined The Lost Abbey Family in January of 2014

Favorite part about working in the Beer Industry?
My favorite part is I feel like I’ve entered into a secret society where the password is “I work at Lost Abbey”…. All the breweries are sort of one big happy family and I love being a part of it – even if it’s just as the third cousin twice removed on Grandma’s side..… Next week they are going to teach me the secret handshake…..

Favorite pastime to drink a beer during?
Attending Staff Meetings

Favorite Lost Abbey/ Port Brewing beer?
At the moment it’s Deliverance. There is nothing about this beer that I don’t love…except maybe how strong it is, that 12.5% packs an awfully big kick, ensuring I can only have small quantities at a time.

If you didn’t work in Beer, what would you do? 
I would probably end up managing an office in some horrible corporate environment where I couldn’t have pink hair, have to hide my tattoos and couldn’t drink beer during staff meetings.

Do you have a secret Talent? 
No secret talents, mainly cause I can’t keep a secret  (as proof – a few questions ago I spilled the beans about the secret beer society) … but I have many talents! I can crochet, knit, sew, bake (sounding like a little old lady here huh?), juggle, throw knives, quote long passages of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Monty Python’s Search for the Holy Grail. I  can alphabetize faster than a speeding bullet and am able to leap short stacks of paperwork in a single bound!

If you could name a beer after yourself, what would it be?
Considering my tiny Elvis obsession, it would be  “Devil in Disguise”. A high abv porter (with some chocolate notes, I love chocolate) that goes down so smooth and creamy you never notice how strong it is until it’s too late. (insert ‘Evil Chuckle’ here)
