Meet the Staff

Jay Gaines — General Manager

Jay Gaines : General Manager

Jay began his professional career as a circus clown and "Carnie", travelling the circuit from Northern Virginia to Florida. After an banana peel-induced injury, Jay began using beer as a coping mechanism and quickly fell under it's sudsy charms. He left the circus in Athens, GA and began delving into the many-faceted world of craft beer. It is widely believed that the Terrapin Beer Company "turtle" mascot found on the Rye Pale Ale is based on a visit Jay and his banjo made to the brewery. After 8 years working at Athens-based package stores in a variety of capacities, Jay made the journey southwest to Birmingham and was part of Hop City's store opening team in the Magic City. Initially the beer manager, Jay's deep knowledge of European styles and brands made him a fan favorite. After several beers, he is prone to slipping into German or Belgian, especially when debating the merits of the German Beer Purity Act of 1516. He was promoted to General Manager in Birmingham in July 2014. His other hobbies include modern dance, sumo wrestling, and collecting vintage Smurf figurines.
