“You don’t need to be pretentious to serve a quality product,” says Good Robot co-owner Josh Counsil. “We’ve always enforced with our robots to make people feel comfortable. Craft beer is still a relatively new phenomenon for a lot of people, so never make them feel stupid. And likewise, don’t make the beer geeks who know quite a bit—don’t make them feel neglected.” In the coming year, Good Robot will be focusing less on events and more on the beer itself. “We’ve got a lot of awesome feedback and accolades on events,” says Counsil, “but we love beer. So we’re gonna focus our attention on making it better all the time.”
