Mr. & Mrs. Drop-In
Steve & Christine, the founders of Drop-In Brewing!
Owner and co-founder of Drop In Brewing, Christine also runs the American Brewers Guild from her home office.
Vilija is our brewer here at Drop-In. Prior to brewing in Vermont, Vilija started her brewing career at Cape Cod Beer Company in Massachusetts. She has completed the American Brewers Guild Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering program here at the Brewers Guild home at Drop-In.
Hailey is our sales/promotions director as well as our marketing and social media genius. Hailey was Born in MA, but moved to Switzerland when she was 4 years old. She spent most of her life on snow or involved in it in some way, teaching snowboarding and also working in her local snowboard store. When Hailey was 21, she moved from Switzerland to Salt Lake City for a year before settling in the Green Mountains of Vermont. She can speak French, English, and German, and can hold her own in Spanish, usually by substituting words she don't know for French. She has a beautiful rescue dog name Loki who is her pride and joy. The two of them happily live in South Burlington and enjoy being outside as much as possible, even when that means just sitting in the backyard.
Kevin works in the taproom at Drop-In. He hails from California, but is currently a student at Middlebury College. He’s an enthusiast for exploring local swimming holes, cooking stellar scrambled eggs, reading non-fiction and asking Sean questions about beer. His favorite part about working at Drop-In is getting to meet all the fun customers that come through the door. Kevin’s go-to beers are The New Brunette, Solar Storm, and Oh Vienna.
Aube is another member of the taproom staff. Also a transplant from out-of-state, his home is in Alaska where he spends his summers plying the waters for its bountiful wild salmon. Growing up in France and Italy, he speaks a few romance languages, but really is mostly romantic about the spirits, wines, and of course beers of the world. He hopes to learn as much as he can from his terrific co-workers at Drop-In with the hopes of starting a brewery sometime down the road.
Eva is a Middlebury, VT native and is part of the taproom and retail staff. She has an insatiable appetite for both true crime books and Thai food. Raised on an apple orchard just down the road from Drop In, Eva grew up in the midst of the hard cider boom in Vermont, although beer is just as (if not more...) dear to her heart.
George, Steve and Christine's son, is spending his summer as part of the taproom staff before starting at UVM in the fall. Raised in Salisbury, VT he is an avid freestyle snowboarder and skateboarder who enjoys swimming and exploring the woods, fields, and mountains of Vermont.
