Zak Schroerlucke
An Atlanta native who's held quite a few positions at SweetWater over the last seven years.  I started as a "parking guy"' when I was in college, worked my way into giving tours, became our bar and events manager and now run field marketing in Atlanta and Athens as well assist in many other departments throughout the brewery. Community outreach is my favorite part of what I do. Anytime I get to connect with the community, especially through environmental organizations like The Georgia Conservancy or Waterkeeper Alliance, it gives me a feeling of fulfillment I don't get anywhere else. I can truly say I have a dream job.
