Roy Weinberg

Roy Weinberg is Roy Weinberg.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois on his birthday. That explains a lot.

In his ‘career’ he’s done a lot of things.

Starting in junior high Roy had a paper route delivering the Arlington Heights Herald; in high school he worked at the Swedish Manor Smorgasbord; in college he worked as a summer help person at Prospect Heights Public School District 23, and also at Garcia’s Pizza in the Pan in his last year; after graduating from College Roy went to work for General Telephone Company of Illinois before transferring to Automatic Electric Labs in Phoenix, Arizona (which later became GTE and ultimately AG Communication Systems); his next career moves were working at a small company called Syntellect, various Honeywell companies and General Dynamics; and finally RETIREMENT in 2011!

Phew, that was a mouthful…

Hennywaze, Roy didn’t think about retirement until sometime in the mid 1980’s. He had amassed $60K in savings and had a mortgage. He had a long way to go.

Craft beer was not in the picture during his ‘green’ years of beer drinking. Come to think of it, he can’t remember when he progressed from drinking ‘American Mega-Swill’ to craft beers.

But, he has never gone back.

Hopefully his experience both in planning for and living in retirement AND his love for good beer will be helpful, entertaining and otherwise useful in your quest for enjoying both retirement and good beer.
