Bartender Spotlight

Bartender Spotlight

with Sabrina of Rustic Road Brewing Company,  5706 Sixth Ave.  

How long have you been bartending? 

I’ve been bartending for nine years! I started bartending at eighteen years old at Bull N Bear  – now known as Kenosha Brewing Co! 

What beer do you recommend that’s on tap at Rustic Road?

I would recommend the Hazelnut Harvest, it’s our most popular beer on tap and a beer that satisfies all palettes 

Who’s your favorite local band?

Miss B Haven! Haven Wells is an incredibly talented individual. If you haven’t heard her sing, come into Rustic Road Monday nights for Open Mic Night- hosted by Shane Madsen starting at 8pm! 

What do you love about bartending? 

Everyone has a story. Whether it’s having a cold one after work to unwind, being there for someone’s bad day or celebrating a birthday, one of the best parts of bartending for me is getting to know people and make them laugh or smile. I still run into my “regulars” from Bull N Bear! 

Do you know any bar tricks?

Nope! I’ve always admired bartenders that are able to do bar flair, but I am honestly the clumsiest human being.

What’s the best advice you’ve received across the bar?

Never take things personally 

What do you love about Downtown Kenosha?

I love it’s forever evolving atmosphere,delicious brunch spots, and going boating on the lake! There’s always something to do in Downtown Kenosha! 

Best bar joke you’ve heard? 


What’s the perfect drink/food pairing at Rustic Road? 

Brisket sandwich with sweet potato tots and the Haze Craze #7! 

What do you like to do for fun?

Yoga, hiking, going out for brunch, or just laying low and binging a good Netflix series and ordering some takeout!
