Julie is Dick’s daughter, and has worked at NW Sausage & Deli off and on throughout high school & college. She came to work full time for her dad in 2005 when he needed a restaurant manager. During this time she also assumed the responsibilities of office manager for the Deli and Brewery. After her dad’s passing, Julie knew that she needed to carry on her dad’s dream and continue operating his businesses. It is now Julie’s dream to make her dad proud by successfully carrying on the family business.
The brewery and deli keep Julie very busy, but she always makes time to spend with her kids, and she enjoys spending time with family & friends. She likes camping and capturing all those special moments taking pictures. She is always up for a good time & laugh, especially with a Dick’s Beer in hand.
Dave PendletonHead Brewer/Brewery Manager
Dave joined Dick’s team in the summer of 2007. Before coming to work at the brewery Dave owned and operated Rocky Top Homebrew in Olympia Wa. He was hired by the legend himself, Dick Young and after a year of employment he was promoted to the head brewer position. He is always keeping an eye on every aspect of the brew house, striving to produce a consistent and enjoyable beer for you the consumer.
When not making beer, Dave is an avid fly fisherman and when the time is right, a mediocre golfer. He always enjoys spending time with his family cooking and of course enjoying a good brew.
Brandon enjoys camping, fishing and hiking. He has been a home brewer for the past 12 years.
He is passionate about all aspects of the brewing process, and specializes in IPA and imperial beers. Brandon is constantly trying to make a beer to satisfy his wife’s tastes! (It always needs more hops!)
