Meet our newest intern, Nicole! She’s a biology student at VCU, and has worked in taprooms and brewpubs for several years already. She’ll be working in the back of the house here at Ardent, helping out with lab work and learning more about the brewing process along the way.

Nicole is originally from Florida, but has come to love it here in RVA. Beyond beer, she enjoys backpacking and rock climbing, and is looking forward to exploring the world of mountaineering. She’s pictured here in the Chilean Patagonia, part of a two-week backpacking trip through Chile and Peru!

Welcome to the team, Nicole!
