Faces of SBC: Sophia Al-Roubaie

April 20, 2017by admin

You’ve probably seen her walking around the restaurant and making sure things are running smoothly and beer is flowing. Our Operations Manager Sophia Al-Roubaie is a two-year Brew Co. veteran who loves guitar as much as she does Neil deGrasse Tyson. Time to meet this member of our Brew Co. family!


What superpower would you want to have and why?

To be able to travel through time, Bill and Ted style. I think I’d have better luck tending to the phone booth than I would maintaining a flux capacitor.


If you could have a meal with anyone dead or alive who would it be and why?

Anthony Bourdain… no, Cleopatra… no, Kurt Cobain… no, Albert Einstein… no. Neil deGrasse Tyson, final answer… I can’t decide!


Favorite Brew Co. beer?

My favorite is the Walnut Street Wheat, because it’s delicious!


What’s your favorite Brew Co. menu item new or old?

Right now it’s the Bayou Chicken, but I sub out the mashed potatoes for mac and cheese.


What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I’ve played guitar since I was 14 years old.


Where are you from and how did you end up in Springfield?

I was born in KC. I guess my parents really liked packing our things into Uhaul trucks because we moved around a lot and somehow ended up in Springfield.
