Wendy came to Hale's Ales as an amateur home brewer and retired beer slinger from the late Old Town Alehouse. Wendy describes herself as, “the newest cellar rat working to become a brewer.” Wendy earned her place in the brewery by frequently dropping in and spoiling the Hale’s Ales production team with her delicious and creative home brews. One that stands out in memory is her delectable habanero ale.
Wendy says that she does not have a favorite style of beer- she likes them all. If she had to choose a couple, they would be Orval and Hop Venom by Boneyard. She likes Orval because it is complex, balanced, and has a delicious Belgian yeast character. She finds Hop Venom dangerously easy-drinking at an ABV of 10% due to its richness as a malty double IPA, balanced with floral hops.
Outside of the brewery, Wendy enjoy sports including hockey (go Nucks!), baseball, football, and Sweeping the Knees Johnny!
