A native Tennessean, Danielle was born in Cottontown and raised in Hendersonville. Danielle worked at renowned Nashville beer spots such as the Flying Saucer and Frugal MacDoogal, where she discovered her love for craft beer and became determined to work in the industry. In 2013, she met Tennessee Brew Works founder, Christian Spears, at the Flying Saucer while the brewery was still being built. Danielle’s driving influences of wanting to work within a local community, explore Nashville’s ever-expanding scenes, and produce distinct and delicious beer led her to Tennessee Brew Works. Her business savvy and dedication to the industry quickly set her apart, and Danielle became one of the first members of the Tennessee Brew Works family.”
