Name: Pat Simons
From: Lake Orion, MI
Favorite hobby: Quite a few things I like to do, just don’t get to do them anymore. Catch up on sleep, golf, and spend time outside.
Role at Hunter’s: General Manager. He keeps this place running… Shake hands and kiss babies with the customers!
What led you to working at Hunter’s?: Short time lived in California. Came back to Mt. Pleasant and started working at O’Kellys as a DJ and barback man. Hunter’s Ale House was losing their manager and was offered the position.
Favorite part about working here?: The customers.
Pick a favorite beer: You can’t ask that question to somebody who likes beer.
Favorite style of beer: Pale Ale. If a brewery has a good pale ale, they probably have some other good beers as well. It’s a base model. Complex stout and good lager or pilsner. I’m not even opposed to a bud light from time to time.
Hopes for Hunter’s in the next year: Brewery fully functioning. People enjoying the beer that we make.
Who is your biggest role model?: My Grandfather…It’s because of him I have the work ethic that I have and have excelled in every job I’ve ever held.
What is a Fun Fact about you?: I used to teach Fencing at CMU.
