Senior Brewery Accountant
A true homebrewer at heart, Bridget was doing bookkeeping work with a property management company when she came across a job post from Chris looking for a brewery accountant. After meeting for a beer, Chris and Bridget hit it off and the rest is history.
Side Note: She also took a 6-pack of homebrew to the interview, which may or may not have swayed his decision…
As the senior-most member of the SBS Accounting team, Bridget is both an expert practitioner and a wealth of knowledge for both clients and coworkers.

"Not only is Bridget a knowledgeable brewery accountant, I feel like I've gained a new friend in working with her! She'll jump on a call in a heartbeat to walk me through whatever I need help with (life). She's a wizard in the back office and keeps our numbers straight as an arrow. Bonus, she even has a kegerator built into her kitchen!"
