Utility entertainer and brewery tour guide Zack Roskop fills Ben in on how he leveraged his unique combination of skill sets to build the most well known brewery guide service in East Tennessee. After growing up with restaurant industry parents, then living on the road with a fringe Christian Rock band, Zack ultimately created Knox Brew Tours-capitilizing on his unique mosaic of seemingly unrelated competencies. Make no mistake about it; this episode is very much about beer.
Welcome back, all you lovely To/From listeners! I AM WAY TO EXCITED ABOUT THIS EPISODE! Meet my pal, Zack Roskop! Zack has done a little bit of everything… like everything. This kind and excited dude is full of so much passion for such a long list of stuff and, as so many Knoxville folks know, one of the biggest of those passions is the love of beer culture. The Knox Brew Tours business, Zack’s amazing brain child, has already had such an impact on the Knoxville beer scene and beyond. In this conversation, we discuss so many of the individual experiences in Zack’s story but also some of the overarching themes of desiring to try much, as well as the fear of not trying things on the horizon. In both the chat and in knowing my friend, Zack holds a truly contagious fervor for life and what possibilities exist. I love this thought that was reflected upon: that life is more about chasing our authentic self than just about anything else. So many of our dreams and relational growth and the way we can affect community is naturally grown and cultivated in finding who we really are. Life is hard y’all, let the bitter and sweet (as we’ll get into in our beer analogies) mingle together. And sometimes you should just have a beer, eat something you love, take a shower and stop being so hard on yourself. Love you all so much. Thank you for being here.
