6 Questions With Cora...
This is our chance to get to know someone better who is working in the B.C. craft beer industry.
1. Who are you?
Hey! My name is Cordelia K Barber, but most people call me Cora. My pronouns are she/her. I love all things that signify: whether that’s words, symbols, art, advertising, or even tire marks on the road. I’ve lived in Ontario, Alberta, and now I live in beautiful Victoria, B.C.
2. What do you do?
I am the Marketing Manager at Lighthouse Brewing Company in Victoria. I’ve been in Food & Beverage since I started working, and love this industry. I also read a lot about philosophy!
3. What is your biggest pet peeve about the industry?
I’ll echo another answer from Grey – pay to play. Elle was so right to point it out, and I will echo elles message.
4. What do you love most about working in the industry?
The people and community! Never in my life have I felt so accepted, loved, and welcomed. Coming from spending 7 years in small town Alberta, the B.C. Craft Beer scene has been so kind to me since I arrived! Love y’all!
5. What is your favourite beer right now?
I can only pick ONE?! I’ll pick a non-Lighthouse beer: Ile Sauvage Verdoyant is sooo delicious!
6. What local charity should we be paying attention to?
For Victoria locals, I simply must plug PEERS (@peers_victoria): safe sex work for all! For B.C. wide, QMUNITY (@qmunity) is great.
