The Resident Daydreamer

The Resident Daydreamer

Most of what BNA is today came from Kyle’s daydreams, so we’re beyond thankful for them. Don’t try to have a conversation while his head is in the clouds though, you might just end up on some crazy journey of opening a brewery or something with him. But seriously, BNA is here because of Kyle’s vision so we hope he never stops dreaming!

They say behind every man is a good woman. Well Kyle & Carolyn work more side by side, and they’re equally good, but if the saying was “behind every daydreamer there is a practical person who reins them in and executes their wild ideas” it would be dead on. Kyle and Carolyn have 3 kids, but BNA probably counts too, so it’s more like 4, and they raise each of them instilling the values of equal parts hard work, ambition, and fun.

Would you rather have 100 small Cassies crunching numbers around the world? Or one full size Cassie crunching numbers at BNA? We’ll take option 2. There’s no question she isn’t afraid to ask or can’t answer.

The Face

The Face

He's the one you'll see making deliveries (on foot or otherwise), the one you'll meet at festivals and tastings, the one posted up at the bar who is always ready to chat everything BNA. Essentially, Kenny has become the face of BNA. Like most of us around here, he does a wide array of jobs, and he does them all with a kind of love and care that goes beyond imagination. He may be the face, but his heart plays a pretty important role too.

The Banker

The Banker

This Swiss Mis(ter) is a whiz in the kitchen. His currency is quality produce and his exchange rate is a smile.

Jill of All Trades

Jill of All Trades

BNA is essentially Full House and Jill is our Danny Tanner. She keeps our household in order and is wise beyond her years. Need a spreadsheet? She’s on it. Babysitter? She'll be there in 5. Did somebody say something about a vegan dessert? Well she baked it and instagramed it. Simply the BNA human Swiss army knife.

Craft Queen

Craft Queen

Lissy is one crafty b****! Seriously. One of her main gigs is re-purposing clothing with her sewing machine and her own special spin, and you can catch her modelling her creations while she manages the floor.

Nike

Nike

We'll call Diane 'Nike' because she 'just do(es) it!' Before you even know you need it done, Diane is on it. She organizes our shelves and our lives and we don't know what we'd do without her. Seriously, this woman has a can-do attitude and a wealth of knowledge to boot. Plus she looks after you like a mama bear, but can party with the best of 'em!

Papa

Papa

Our Bar Manager's name is technically Mark, but you'll likely hear him more often referred to as "Papa Bear" or just "Papa." He's built a team of talented barkeeps, taking them all lovingly under his ...paw?

The Mad Scientist

The Mad Scientist

Also known as our Executive Chef, Justin’s kitchen mannerisms sometimes resemble a scientist who has perhaps spent too much time alone in the lab. You can almost see the wheels turning as he mimes the plating of his latest creation or paces while he thinks up the final ingredient for a new masterpiece. Justin has been a part of BNA since the beginning; we really couldn’t imagine anyone else in his shoes.

Constable Responsible

Constable Responsible

Spencer has been with BNA since the get-go. Don’t let his flowing locks fool you; Spencer’s laces are done up tight. Not in a boring-never-has-any-fun way, but in a trustworthy-you-know-he’ll-get-the-job-done-right-with-no-nonsense kind of way. He spends most of his time over at Skinny Duke's these days, where he can be found walking (not running) around the restaurant making sure everyone has what they need.
