Here at the brewery, we have a fantastic team of hardworking individuals who we like to call, Good Beer Folks.

Event Coordinator

Can you describe your role?

Planning for all wedding, social and corporate events at the Roundhouse. 

What’s one of your favourite milestones at Steam Whistle that you’ve been a part of?

The annual canoe trip in Killarney. The year I went is immortalized in our 2021 Steamy Men of Steam Whistle calendar thanks to Beau and Sweets’ canoe ride!

Is there a piece of Steam Whistle history that makes you extremely proud to work here? (whether you were around or not when it happened)

The Art Show featured in our Taproom Gallery. I’m so proud that we support the art community and get to see so many talented artists featured in this historic space. To then be able to walk the halls and see pieces from each of those shows on display, makes the Roundhouse the space it is – eclectic and beautiful.

If you had to choose, what would be your favourite aspect of working at Steam Whistle? 

The people – the GBF family is filled with remarkable and talented individuals that I’m grateful to be able to have a beer with at the end of the day. 

What is a Steam Whistle initiative that means a lot to you? 

The green-sustainable initiative! It is my hope to expand this further within the events side of the brewery to make us even greener and more self-sufficient.

Is it true when people say the Steam Whistle culture is contagious? 

100% – I think we’ve all drank the Pilsner kool-aid! It’s such a great culture of people, past and present, with the ability to meld through the stories we have from working here. I feel like I have lived all of these parties and events just from the storytellers that work(ed) here.

Where is your favourite place to enjoy a Steam Whistle? 

On my dock at the cottage of course!
