    Sounds like you are in the thick of things. What do you do at Beam? What are the perks?
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    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. 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!
