Akron Ale Fest Featured Crafter: Mrs Miller Time

Who are you and what is your role at your business?

I'm Beth and I do everything =)

Where did the idea for your logo come from?

Alas, my logo could use some work and is ever changing.  The current iteration pulls from the items I etch.

What is your favorite seasonal beer?

 If all the beer isn't an acceptable answer then it would have to be all the new ways people are using blood orange.  IPA, Wheat and Gose, Oh My!  I know it's a passing fad but I've long been a fan of grapefruit in beer and this citrus is no exception!

What is your favorite tool you use to create your goods?

 By far the blasting cabinet.  There is something viscerally satisfying about removing material to expose the design that was in your head.

What is your most recent milestone?

I created a new line of baby-centric wares.  It's really satisfying to create treasures for people.  It's really cool to think this is going to hang on someones wall and they are going to look at it and (hopefully) get all sentimental.  I mean it could become an heirloom, I have my birth info that someone made for my mother on my wall.  Is that a bit egocentric? =)

What is your next major goal for your business?

 Fixing my website!  I've been neglecting it and it's getting a little mad at me...

Lion, wolf, or dragon who will win and why?

Dragon!  Because in hypothetical fights all mythical creatures win.
