Guy Badeau of Farrell Distributing in Burlington, Vermont, was selected as the winner of NBWA’s 2017 Share Your Story Contest and traveled to Washington, D.C., as a first-time attendee of NBWA’s Legislative Conference. Guy has worked at Farrell Distributing for more than 37 years, starting as a janitor and working up to his current role as a state inventory manager. While in Washington, D.C., Guy attended meetings on Capitol Hill to share his story with members of Congress and gave a firsthand account of the quality jobs and benefits that family-owned beer distribution companies provide.
NBWA’s Share Your Story Contest was launched to highlight some of the 135,000 men and women who make up the beer distribution industry – from truck drivers, inventory specialists and graphic artists to sales representatives, warehouse workers and administrative personnel.
