Pursuing Your Interests on National Beer Day:
Brian Sorensen, Director of Human Resources
Writing about beer has been a rewarding experience for me because, first and foremost, I enjoy working with language. Finding the right words to tell a story is a challenge that is more energizing than exhausting for me. It’s like a Rubik’s cube comprised of adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions that I can’t seem to put down. It’s no surprise that my Birkman results show a very high interest in “literary” activities.
I also have a high interest in the “artistic” category. To me, brewing beer is a work of artistic expression. Ingredients are mixed and matched in different measures to create something that palates will hopefully find pleasing. Brewers are like painters, and the brewhouse is their canvas. I love hearing—and retelling—their stories.
So, while I had to put those dreams of opening my own brewery on hold (for now, at least), writing about beer has been the next best thing because I get to combine two of my biggest passions. And all things considered, finding that sense of fulfillment outside of work has made me a better Tyson Foods team member.
There are as many personality types in the world as there are craft beers.
With that mind, in honor of National Beer Day, I’ve “crafted” my own list of beer-and-personality matches for your enjoyment.
I present to you:
Taken the Birkman? How do your results stack up the Beerkman?
