Good guys serving good beer was reason enough for Heath to jump the counter and step into a part-time role with Rossland Beer Co. Heath considers himself a jack-of-all-trades, having spent years cutting and installing granite countertops, setting tile, constructing homes, and completing renovations before landing in the utility department at Teck and his role at the brewery. Castlegar born and bred, Heath also spent a decade travelling the US, playing in punk rock bands, working as a roadie, and building sets for theatre and film. At home in the Kootenays, where he raised his kids, he's now revisiting his passion for music by playing acoustic gigs with friends and drums for a punk rock band called bitter//washed. He also spends time snowboarding or splitboarding the local mountain, recording in his home-based studio, and socializing at his favourite watering-hole-turned-workplace. At the end of the day, Heath will grab a Green Jacket pale ale because he likes the drinkability, but says he'll drink anything wet.
