Our Crew

Joe D

You have three sentences to tell your story. Go:
Born and raised in Southern Connecticut and studied at the University of Vermont. Worked a bunch of odd jobs until I found Downeast. Now I live in Brooklyn where I ride a single speed bike, wear flannel shirts and sell cider out of an artisanal wicker basket.

What’s your favorite non-cider activity in the cider house?
Well… I haven’t really been involved in many non cider activities at the cider house, but I really enjoy learning from the rest of the Downeast team. Everyone has an interesting background and brings something unique to the table.

If you are fired tomorrow, what will you be doing next week?
I really like road trips and camping, plus I have always wanted to live on the west coast. I have some friends in San Fransisco so I would probably end up making my way out there. Take my time and check off some national parks along the way.

What alcoholic beverage is most frightening to you?
Anything that is served in a fruit or comes with a miniature umbrella. 

If you could bring one person onto the Downeast team who would it be and why?
I am going to have to go with Chewbacca, I think he would make a pretty good co-worker. Great sense of humor, impeccable hair and I am sure the production guys wouldn’t mind the extra muscle, especially when moving kegs. 

Are you 21+ OR capable of lying on the internet?
