I'm your Pusherman aka Brand Manager. I've been around since the days of Session Ale in bottles, when the tap room was Chris and Mary Ellens backyard, and the office was Front Street Coffee. I can usually be found in my car listening to WMBR while looking for a parking spot. My Top 3 Emcees of all time are Rakim, Black Thought, Facemob.
Claire Hartnell - Bartender, Brand Ambassador
As the first Brand Ambassador, Claire wanders the metro Boston area. Spilling knowledge about session beer, while telling people about the identity of Notch is her game. Not often will you find her without a Session Pils in hand talking to someone who does something somewhere. Do not feed after midnight, do show pictures of your dog.
Kylie Klinger - Brand Representative
You can find Kylie chatting up Boston about how awesome Notch is, and twisting your arm to try out session beers. In her spare time, you will find her running for beer, and carrying beer up mountains. She may be small, but she will drink you under the table, in liters.
Mary Ellen Leahy - Co-Founder
A not-so-silent partner of Notch since it's inception, Mary Ellen joined Notch full time in July 2016 to make sure the trains ran on time. She now oversees sales, marketing, and sometimes boring paperwork for Notch Brewing and the Notch Taproom & Brewery.
Brent Parker - Brand Manager
18 years in the beer business working with brands from Brooklyn to Narragansett. A Brand Manager with Notch since 2015. Spreading the session beer gospel across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and beyond.
John "JT" Thompson - Brand Activations & Events
I manage the road show- Notch's Mobile Biergarten. I've spent my career in the beer industry, which currently means being at the laptop in cooler weather and outside during the warmer months. If you've got an event idea, please send me a note. Three random things I love: UNC basketball, The Best Show and traveling to the south and the west.
