Leigh Germy: A Lady Who Loves Beer

Meet Leigh. She's Terrapin Beer Company's Atlanta Market Rep. and an all around awesome Lady. 

A crazy talented photographer, and a resource for healthy balance between beer and brewing up a hella strong immune system (she gave me some rad tips on juicing a while back) this sweet and sassy beer beauty jumped in to fill the feature for Atlanta's October Lady Who Loves Beer. 

Thanks Leigh!

Hey, go ahead and wish her a happy birthday while you're at it by drinking a Terrapin beer (it's her birthday month, she tells me).

Tell us about you. Where are you from? How did you end up in Georgia? Do you think Athens will be your forever home?

"I'm a nomad from the midwest. My family moved around most of my childhood. I moved to Atlanta 10 years ago, looking for something new and warmer weather. I live in Decatur currently. I always dream about going West; who knows what will happen?"

When you're not drinking beer you're... (What do you enjoy doing in your spare time--walking dogs, swimming oceans, juicing greens, etc.?)
"I am a juicer actually, and have become a lot more conscious of my health as I have been in the beer industry. I am in bars and restaurants a lot so I enjoy getting out and doing other things, like hiking, camping, traveling. I love the beach, riding my bike, seeing art shows or music, sports, etc."

What is your role at Terrapin and how did you get the job? Do you have other paying work (your photography for example) that you'd like to talk about?
"I am the Atlanta Market Rep. I cover Savannah and South GA as well. I was working at Brick Store Pub prior for three years, where I met Steve, and later applied for the job when I heard it became available. I am also a photographer and dabble in the art community."

Future goals/plans/dreams (either beer related, or not)?
"I'd like to eventually get married and have a family. I'm pretty happy with my life as it is right now, but I'm continually looking for more things to challenge me--that may be professionally or personally."

Favorite/usual spots to grab a beer in Athens/Atlanta?
"I'm not in Athens much. Atlanta, I'm in Sister Louisa's Church most the time. It was my watering hole when I worked at Brick Store. They are good friends. Argosy, Sweet Auburn, Bantum Pub, the new Ladybird... just to name a few."

New brew loves? Old favorites?
"Boulevard Two Jokers and Creature Comforts Athena are two of my current favorites. Will always be a Saison Dupont fan, for life."

If you could have one beer with anyone you like, anywhere in the world (past or present) who/where would it be, and why?

"Bill Murray because he is funny and I'd like to pick his brain about what he has learned."
