Gary Thomas is new Deschutes sales rep. (Weekly Specialty Beer Report).

The Deschutes Brewery has announced the promotion of Gary Thomas, former Deschutes Brewery bartender, to area sales representative for Central Oregon, Boise, Idaho and the Yakima/Tri-Cities, Washington area. "Gary has shown through perseverance, passion and levity that he's ready to hit the glamorous road in pursuit of hand-selling Deschutes ales to the zealous community of craft beer drinkers," said John Bryant, Deschutes Brewing Co.'s director of marketing and sales.

Following a brief initiation with Washington sales team, Mr. Thomas mused, "What have I done?"

Gary Thomas started at Deschutes Brewery in October 1996 as a waiter, was promoted to bartender and after a brief stint in pub management, made the leap to sales.

"Gary's persistence and interest in consumer interaction landed him in the hand-to-mouth career of field sales, a choice I think he is truly excited about," Bryant said. "We welcome him aboard."
