Interns Recreate 80′s Movie Scenes – Contest #3

Jared Vallejo
Jared Vallejo July 23rd 2014

Okay, so the first two rounds of the Interns Recreate 80′s Movie Scenes were a bit on the easy side.
Or, you all know your 80′s movies too well.
I’m going with the former.

This week’s photo is from one of my favorite movies. And by favorite, I mean, I watched it once and laughed.

To be clear, the interns had never heard of this movie until now, so they can’t really appreciate what they recreated.

Anyhow, here is this week’s photo featuring all three of the Iron Horse Brewery interns. #unicornconnie, #mustachepete, and #nonicknamerobyn

High Five a Charity part dos

Tess McIntyre
Tess McIntyre July 22nd 2014

Hello people of the internet. This quick blog is to let you know we are creeping up on part two of our High Five a Charity initiative. What is that you say, young marsupial? You don’t know about this ‘High Five a Charity’ thingy? Well that’s crazy that you don’t but I will tell you about it anyways.

We love high fiving and we want to be sure that we can extend a high five to everyone who is near us and  virtually, as well, to deserving organizations of your choosing. For the past month-ish we’ve asked that you nominate a charity of your choice for Iron Horse Brewery to send a money-filled-High Five. So you should go to and do that now. and then come back and read some more.

Be sure to get all your nominations in by August 5th at 5:55pm because as of 5:56 pm open nominations will close. From there we take the top ten most nominated organizations, link to their website and social media and ask that the public get to know these non profits, and then vote for where they think this money high five should go. Anyone who happens upon will be able to choose which organization get’s their vote.

So really this post is to tell you to get nominating in hopes that your organization makes its way to the top ten list.

More details to follow on Part two. We promise. Ish.

Chrons of the Summer Stache Pt. Something

Peter Heinen
Peter Heinen July 17th 2014

Hello again, Mustache Pete here and proudly reporting on the progress of the summer stache. Okay, proudly might be poorly worded but the stache is coming along. Once again I will state if I was a brunette then the stache would be way more impressive…. but if you get PRETTY close you can see what is a nice base for my “upper LIPholstery” and from a distance you can see a shadow on my lip… I’ll take it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful, “beer” filled Fourth of July; I spent the day hiking in Leavenworth. If anyone is looking for a ridiculously gorgeous day hike in the Central Washington area I highly recommend hiking to 8-mile lake in the Wenatchee National Forrest. ATTENTION ALERT: Lazy bums there is some early vertical during the hike and it is labeled “difficult” on the trail guides online, but ….I have the upmost confidence in “beer lovers” that most conditioned humans could do this hike with no problem. Surprise surprise the “8-mile lake” hike finishes with a nice sloping terrain leading to…a lake. It is an alpine lake so lets just say the water is…not warm and I experienced this the hard way. I may or may not have thrown my GoPro very, very poorly and watched it clank off the rock face I was attempting to climb, splash into the water, and slowly trickle down towards the bottom of the lake. There was only one thing to do, tighten up my big boy pants, channel my inner Michael Phelps, and spread my wings because I wasn’t going home empty handed.

Long story short on about the fifth dive (45 minutes later) I snagged my GoPro off the sandy bottom of the lake and pushed up towards the surface screaming in excitement. My only regret is not pressing the record button before I made the ill advised throw. My GoPro is alive and well and with a couple quick jumping jacks and “high-fives” (Promotion plug: just a reminder to all beer lovers to post pictures to our #H5project Facebook page and of course don’t forget the #hashtag #H5project. Get outside be crazy… and post pictures!) my purple and pink hands returned to their pasty white color. All was well and this was easily the prettiest hike I have ever been on.

It’s that day of the week again.
No, not the day when you realize your roommate forgot to pay your internet access bill and they are going to turn it off.
Yes, the day in which we start another round of intern recreated scenes from 80′s movies.
No, not the day before Friday.
Yes, it’s Wednesday.

Okay, back to the contest. I admit to laughing too much when seeing these pictures. Fortunately, #mustachepete is a good sport. And #unicornconnie and #nonicknamerobyn did a great job getting this staged.

Here is the picture.

Embracing the 80′s has finally paid off

Tess McIntyre
Tess McIntyre July 14th 2014

I just got back from a 10 day vacation. That is not just a fact and a brag. Or a Frag. Bract. I needed to tell you this so that I could then say this: The highlight of my vacation, besides drinking 21 bottles of wine (responsibly. sorry, beer.), was opening up my Facebook to see the awesome picture our interns posted of their 80′s recreation. You are all correct. It was Flashdance but what you all don’t know is how attractive #MustachePete looked in his pink leotard, in color, how good with a broom #UnicornConnie and #NoNicknameRobyn are, and how great High Five Hefe cans are at photobombing. So we thought that we’d give you a glimpse behind the scenes.

Our winner for last week has been notified via Facebook. So all you have left to do is dream of this pink leotard and hold your breath until Wednesday when a new photo will be posted.
