Sounds like you are in the thick of things. What do you do at Beam? What are the perks?

I work in the shipping department.As for the perks, the pay is great and they do give us free alcohol once a month,but it is usually something other than bourbon.....tequila,vodka,schnapps,rum etc.

Welcome trx. I agree with what spun_cookie said. I think it's great to have people in the "industry" as members. It's always good to get a take on things from the inside. It can be educational and eye opening. I also look forward to your posts and participation here at SB. So, lets pop the bung, and get this party rolling.:woohoo: Hope you have some fun while you're at it. Joe

Heheheh. He said "bung".

Anyway, let me extend my welcome as well, trx450. It's a good bunch o' folks round here. And I never worked at a distillery, but I did recently learn that a great-uncle of mine was a moonshiner, so that's something I guess. Anyway, welcome aboard!
