BDC started with a group of friends sharing their stories, so we want to keep those good vibes rolling with our Grab a drink with.... Q&A series. We're lucky enough to get to meet a ton of awesome people, and we think it'd be cooler if you got to meet them, too. It's our pleasure to introduce you to some of them...

Do you know someone with an inspiring story people need to hear? If so, please nominate them below, and we'll extend the invite for a drink (of their choice).


Who are we having a drink with next???

Nanc McGorman

Nanc has a BDC story, which is leading her on a journey of recovery to not only help herself, but empower others in the service/hospitality industry. When she's not slinging beers or Crack Fries, she's exploring the beauty of being healthy outside on foot and bike, and now proudly with her son by her side every positive step of the way.



Jen's a recent grad of Grand Valley State University, with B.B.A. in marketing, and a minor in Hospitality and Tourism Management. She's a lover of craft beer and her giant cat, Paulie, but not so much a fan of waking up with a hangover. She reflects on how her college drinking culture has shaped her respect for the craft today.



Kris Spaulding
