Want to learn more about the people behind the Brew? This series will give you the answers to the most important questions (and some not-so-important questions) you may want to ask. This week, we’re chatting with Chadwick Horne, our Digital Director.
- Where did you grow up? I grew up in a charming southern town named Thomasville in southwest Georgia. I grew up on a 300-acre farm with lots of animals about 10 miles away from the Florida-Georgia line. I am a Seminole at heart.
- What do you do for fun? I love playing with my kids, having date nights with my wife, and when I have personal time, I play & write music.
- Did you always want to be a Digital Director? No, I wanted to be a musician since I was a little kid. I was the kid who was always singing and dancing. I taught myself to play guitar by ear – without YouTube, LOL.
- What’s your favorite brew? While in LA, my family and I would often go to Frogtown Brewery – it’s kid-friendly. My favorite brew there is Hazy River, though Feather In It and War On Sobriety are not too far behind. Now that I am in Miami, I have found some good local breweries: J. Wakefield, Veza Sur and Islamorada.
- What’s your top Brew core value and why? Positivity & Adapt. Like everyone else in the world dealing with COVID, my family and I have had to learn to embrace and accept radical change. Staying positive and keeping that positivity going through challenging times builds character and strengthens fortitude.
- Favorite local lunch spot? The Tipsy Boar
- What’s one fact about yourself that most people would be surprised to hear? I am a football fanatic who is obsessed with the Xs and Os. I could have easily been a coach. I love a great defense, well-designed plays and strategies that disrupt. I will take on anyone in a punt, pass and kick challenge – let’s go!
- Which fictional character (tv show, movie, or book) do you most identify with? The Dude
- What’s your ideal birthday celebration? Being surprised by my family with a trip to somewhere I’ve never been.
Who do you want to be when you grow up? I love what I do so I don’t see myself ever retiring…I’d like to own a winery in California, build a recording studio, and travel as much as possible.
