Time for the next former employee feature. Each month we’re highlighting one of our fine cousins (what we call our employees) who has left us and moved on to a new place in their working life. Once a cousin, always a cousin.
Name: Robyn Stewart
IHB: Position at Iron Horse Brewery?
RS: Marketing Intern, Event Coordinator, IHBC barista
IHB: Don’t forget about Fraternal Order of Eagles Beer Buyer Awareness Greeter
IHB: What years did you work at IHB?
IHB: It was only a year, but it was ONE. LONG. YEAR. j/k.
IHB: What is your favorite IHB beer?
IHB: Just like you, this beer is no longer part of Iron Horse Brewery, although it will always be in our memory, until we forget.
IHB: Where do you work now?
RS: Amazon Corporate.
IHB: Do you have to wear sweaters 3 times a week or 5 times a week?
IHB: What do you do at Amazon Corporate?
RS: I am a Public Relations Specialist on the Amazon Devices team. I help announce new products and work with the media to represent Amazon devices including Kindle e-readers, Echo Look, Fire tablets, Dash Buttons, and more.
IHB: Cool story. Why can’t we buy a Google Home Mini on Amazon.com?
IHB: How are you doing better now that you’ve moved on from IHB?
RS: I make more money now, but I definitely miss the day drinking.
IHB: Day drinking is more fun, although, dropping hundies into a blender and drinking that might be rad too. We’ll have to take your word for it.
IHB: Is there one thing that working at iron horse brewery helped you to get where you are now? Conversely, how did we ruin things for you?
RS: Other than honing my sarcasm skills, IHB definitely helped (forced?) me to be more comfortable operating “in the gray”. I just really love structure.
IHB set a pretty high bar when it comes to comradery. I think the term “cousin” says it all, you’ll never find another team that feels more like a family than Iron Horse.
IHB: Structure is for buildings and cars and exoskeleton suits. We’re glad that we helped you work in the gray, and see, look where you ended up, one of the most care-free, freewheeling work environments the world has ever known.
IHB: What is your favorite mythical creature?
IHB: Are you embarrassed that you didn’t say “Chauncy”?
IHB: What is your most memorable moment at IHB?
RS: I have two: Being forced to touch noses with Peter the intern for the sake of 1980’s nostalgia. That one time I worked an event in Leavenworth and didn’t untap the keg correctly. Beer actually went up my nose and under my eye-lids. People clapped. It was embarrassing.
IHB: According to this picture, you didn’t touch noses. Your willingness to recreate these movie scenes is what made the marketing the campaign the 19th most popular thing we have ever done. Thank you, Robyn.
IHB: On a scale of 1 to 10.3 how much do you miss working at Iron Horse?
RS: Like an 11.7
IHB: You have learned well, Robyn. You have learned well.
