Meet Jim! He is the oh-so-friendly Manager and self-declared CMO (Chief Mopping Officer) of the Boom Room. Those who’ve had the pleasure of spending five minutes with this taproom expert know Jim relishes in educating customers about Belgian style beers, all the while making them laugh with a good story. Nothing makes him happier than seeing customers return to the taproom with family and friends. He often tells his guests that all tips he receives go into his “college fund,” yet he has never properly explained why he uses that particular expression. Jim’s talents extend far beyond the brewery though. He has been writing clever comic haiku poems for 15 years, most recently with the Drinking with Ian show on cable. He has bartending experience, as well as too-many-years-to-mention experience in customer service, and it shows.  He is also a self-proclaimed music geek and loves turning unsuspecting customers into fans of whatever he is playing at the taproom. In short, but sweet summary, Jim is a unique piece to the Boom Island Brewing puzzle, and we are happy to have him in our family!

Stop in to the taproom soon to experience Jim’s wit and knowledge yourself! Catch his haiku on Drinking with Ian, or follow him vicariously on Twitter @BoomTaproom
