The friendly a**hole who brings balance!
As many of you may have noticed, we have several new faces working the taproom. We will do our best to introduce our dandy new employees over the next few months, starting today with our new Taproom Manager, Dominic Liljenquist. With a budding interest in astrology, Dominic just had his star chart done and happily told us that he’s a Leo with a cancer rising and an ascending Libra. He’s a self proclaimed… well, see the photo caption above.
Ask the Brewer
So, who’s the new guy working every night in the taproom?
Along with our new extended hours (open on Wednesdays, where have you been?) we got a new taproom manager. As the latest in a line of gifted conversationalists behind the bar, we felt it was only fair to give all of you a little insight into who Dominic is.
What do you do at Burning Brothers?
I’m the taproom manager, I do whatever they tell me to do. Within reason, but said more colorfully.
What’s the best part of your job?
Interacting with the customers, being able to joke, laugh and have a good time. In my opinion we’re just a bunch of dorks trying to sell beer. And it is comfortable, from my co-workers to the music we listen to.
What’s the worst part of your job?
I don’t have one yet, but my biggest fear is that I will make a mistake with food requirements, and may get people sick. The gluten-free part is new to me, but I’m a fast learner!
What’s your favorite Burning Brothers Beer?
Scorched (this is an off-menu mix of Roasted and Raj-Agni, don’t be afraid to ask for it).
What is your favorite other beer?
There’s so many, but based on the season we’re currently in, I love Zombie Monkey. It is a robust porter by Tall Grass, and with its tactile grip can, imminently suited for fleeing Zombies without dropping your drink.
Pirates or Ninjas?
Pirates – I’m a pirate! I’d love to be a ninja, but my wife says I’m too loud, so I have to be a pirate.
If you could add one thing to the brewery/taproom, what would it be?
More stuff to provide flair in the taproom. Things that reflect who we are and where we come from.

This Friday (12/16) Signature on Wheels will be here with their eclectic take on American Cuisine. On Saturday (12/17) we will not have a food truck, so we invite people to BYOGFF (Bring Your Own Gluten-Free Food). If you have questions or need suggestions, let us know!
Reminder that this year we are a drop-off location for Toys For Tots! Though the toy drive runs through December 21st, this is the final weekend for the BBB taproom. In order to finish with a bang, when you bring in and donate a new, unwrapped toy, we’ve doubled-down and are now giving you $2 off your first pint! (Which we are donating to the cause!)
