Against The Grain brewery is known for serving craft beer and BBQ right outside of Louisville’s Triple-A baseball stadium. Last week when I stopped in to speak with the service manager, Marty Chadwell, he mentioned a couple of changes that have happened since he started working in the new position, and some changes he’ll be making in the near future.
“I was hired last fall and immediately I was like, we need to hire some good workers that show real passion in the service industry,” said Chadwell. “The first person we hired was this girl that had 15 years of service industry experience, but she had like 3 tats that were all Looney Toons related. We let her work for a little bit, but fired her after we found Jessie. Jessie has a tat that says “OBEY” on her right butt cheek. We almost gave her stock in the company right away, but thought we would see if she could use a POS station first. Also we needed to know what other ink she has in mind for the future.”
Chadwell says the brewery has since hired 15 more girls like Jessie with great tats, but thinks one more ought to do it.
“It wasn’t until I started hovering around American Outfitters that I started finding some girls with really sweet tats,” said Chadwell. “One girl had this tat that was like two guns in her belt loop and in between the guns it said, “Kentucky Bitch”. I thought about giving her keys to the restaurant right there on the spot, but thought I would see how many glasses of water she could carry first.”
Chadwell thinks the girls tattoos add to the brewery’s edgy image, and they look super “cool as fuck”.
“My wife’s got tats, I’ve got tats, all the cooks up here have tats, the owners have tats,” said Chadwell. “My neighbors got tats, barbers got tats, grocery baggers got tats, father in law has tats, postmans got tats, kids sunday school teachers got tats, lady checking us out at TJ Maxx had tats, guy at Apple store had tats, guy jogging by my house has tats, manager at California Pizza has tats, so I figured, why not an army of chill as fuck girl servers with tats?”
At presstime Against The Grain said they will be hiring kitchen staff with sick ass mohawks next month.
