Whether serving up an authentic story, a shared laugh, or bearing witness to life’s moments of honest adventure–great service goes beyond the glass.

James Meiners

Working at Freight Kitchen & Tap in Woodstock, Georgia for the last four years, James Meiners considers it a point of pride to have served Reformation’s first draft beer to the public in December 2013.

Reformation Brewery’s CEO Spencer Nix says James is not only an advocate for the brewery, but also a good friend. “James keeps me humble.”

Exemplifying authenticity and humor, Nix says “James serves every customer a refreshing dose of reality, regardless of story. A love for his community shines through in his service to others.”

While his love for Reformation runs deep, James’ appreciation for Nix goes well beyond beer–“Spencer keeps me grounded,” Meiners says.
