At Black Storm Brewery we really have the best team, this is why we are starting a monthly appreciation post, showcasing a team member who’s gone the extra mile this past month.

Working at Black Storm no two days are ever the same, we could be at a festival, setting up a new shop or bar, delivering beers nationally or serving our wonderful customers.

This however would be impossible without our Logistics Manager – Mr Black Storm Van himself – Gordon.

Without Gordons hard work, passion and expertise, we would struggle to keep up with our busy schedule.

Last year Gordon was recruited as a part-time delivery driver and has grown alongside Black Storm, as the company has developed into an exciting, forward-thinking brewery.

An example of Gordon’s versatility was perfectly highlighted last week. Having spent three days in Leeds for the Pub in the Park festival, the team and Gordon arrived back in Whitley Bay late on Sunday night, only to be in the office Monday and Tuesday to attend managers meetings and to plan the week ahead; Wednesday and Thursday he was off to Manchester, to build Beer Box in Hatch – Black Storm’s newest venture; and finally Friday-Sunday was spent at another festival, this time in Seaham.

Nevertheless, most weeks are usually just as hectic – sometimes even crazier, and Gordon is usually the man in the centre of making things run smoothly.

Hats off to you Gordon, the Black Storm team are more than grateful for your efforts, continue the great work!
