Travis here. I am one of the beer guys here at Parker Payless. I feel honored to be a part of the team and there are certain days I look forward to heading to work a little bit more than others. Days when I feel the chill air on my skin and hear the light ‘clink’ of one bottle against another as I place a new beer on the shelf. In the midst of putting bottle after bottle in its place it strikes me how lucky I am.

There’s a slight rush of excitement as I wonder and theorize what these new beers will taste like. Then as I take a moment to look around the cooler I realize that there are just as many, and just as exciting beers that have been here all along. It’s something I take for granted, but in these moments I realize what an amazing thing it is to have all of these great beers surrounding me. Crooked Stave, Great Divide, Gigantic Brewing, Stone and Jolly Pumpkin. Trappistes Rochefort, To Ol and Trois Dames.

Having interesting and delicious beers not only from across the United States, but from around the world all within arm’s reach is something truly amazing, and it is something I love to share with everyone that steps into our store.
