Meet Front of House Team Member Tori Anders

Our philosophy at Jester King is strongly rooted in creating a sense of place, by tying our guests' experience to a time, place, and people. Whether dining onsite in one of our lands, eating hearth baked Hill Country sourdough bread that you picked up curbside, or enjoying one of our beers purchased from your local retailer, our intent is to build a connection and experience with our guests and community.

We could not foster these relationships without the people who work tirelessly every week at Jester King, from the front of house to our kitchen, our production team to our artists, and many more! With this in mind, we continue our Jester King staff spotlight series so you can get to know our team.

Next up for our Staff Spotlight Series meet Tori Anders, a member of our Front of House staff. Tori joined the Jester King Tasting Room team in spring of 2020. She's had considerable experience in restaurant and event management in Austin, and her positive attitude is infectious for both staff and guests alike!

WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?

I've spent over eight years in beers sales, hospitality and event management.

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO WORKING AT JESTER KING?

I I would be lying if I didn't say BEER was the initial attraction! But it is the people I work with and their passion that keep me engaged. Goats are also a good time!

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WORKING AT JESTER KING?

It is a gift to work so close to nature and with such a diverse and authentic group of people. I like to believe our time spent out here together shows up in the creation of our beers and is felt by those we share them with.

WHAT ARE A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE JESTER KING BEERS? A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE FOOD MENU ITEMS?

For beer, Colour 5 and Das Wunderkind have been longtime favorites and Rex Machina and the Dry Hopped Oat Saison are a couple freshies I enjoy.

For favorite food, Hannibal (aka - for the meatlovers) would be my pizza. I am also not typically a cornbread fan, but I love our jalapeno & pepperjack cornbread.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU ENJOY DRINKING?

Mmm depends on the weather and occasion but I also enjoy Pét-nat, Orange wine, Lambrusco... and whiskey neat. Water and the occasional Pedialyte is also instrumental.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

My spare time is taken up with yoga, running, movies, books, cuddling with the pup, taking care of the plants.

I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT:

My lil partner Rudi. He's an eleven-year-old Yorkie that's both sweet and sassy. And wildly loyal!
