Did you know that Sun King has a rockstar working on the brew deck? Meet Trevor!


• Name:  Trevor Wathen


• Nickname:  Excalibur


• Job Tile/Duties:  Trevor is one of Sun King's Assistant Cellarman.  He spends his days at Sun King filtering all of the Fresh•Local•Beer you love so much.  So pretty much he's a "Beer Babysitter".


• How did you get here?  In 2012, Trevor's band, We Are Hex , went on hiatus crushing millions of hearts.  Trevor started working in construction and worked on several different projects at SKB including the South Building build out of the Sour Room before he found himself on the Brew Deck.


• What's your favorite thing about working at Sun King?  The people!  It's Trevor's home and away from home.


• Where are you from/where did you grow up?  Trevor's hometown is Tell City, IN located in southern Indiana.


• What is the most gratifying part of your job?  The quality of product that Sun King produces.


• What is the best thing that has happened to you while working at Sun King Brewing?  Getting married on October 5th, 2013.  (Insert:  Awww, what a sweet guy!)


• What might someone be surprised to know about you?  While out on tour with his band, people are pretty surprised that he works at a brewery.

• Who is your favorite musician/band?  Nick Cave


• What is your favorite film?  Big Trouble in Little China  (Which was screened at Sun King this winter with the Roving Cinema)


• What was the first album that you purchased?  Ace of Bands - Trevor would like for all of you reading this blog that he was a tween when he purchased this album.


• What musical instruments can you play?  Guitar, bass, keys, noise box, and theremin.  We know you are wondering what the heck is a theremin?  It is an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact by the "thereminst" or performer.  


• As one of the few vegetarians at SKB, what is your favorite dish to make/eat?  Trevor makes a mean garlic butter asparagus.  It's his signature go-to dish.
