Ever see that super cool Hair O’ The Dog truck cruising around town??? No, we are not out joyriding with any of our product! One of the fun parts of my job is getting to coordinate deliveries with the DogMobile and drive it myself (when Joe’s feeling brave). Aside from getting friendly honks on the road (those are friendly, right??), everyone is happy and in good moods to see their booze arrive. It really is fun to bomb around town in a big, tall truck and know that I’m kicking someone’s weekend off right. And yes, this 5’2” munchkin does a get a kick out of driving “big, tall trucks,” can you tell?
Having a couple great delivery guys (Sean and Jordan) and some serious muscle to load it up at the store (that’s for you, Joe) really streamlines the process. With any size delivery, I make sure all the product is in the store and compiled, Joe or Sean are dispatched to load up the truck, and then Sean gets to roam Talbot County and get everything set up where it needs to be. For big deliveries, the DogMobile has a trailer, which is apparently my next task – to learn how to drive AND reverse with a trailer attached. Look out everybody!
