Jesse “Cricket” Wood

Beertender Extraordinaire


Jesse joined The Lost Abbey Family in September of 2011

Favorite part about working in the Beer Industry?
I love the sense of community in this industry. we are not busy trying to best the next guy. Instead we work towards a higher and ultimately more fulfilling goal.That of course is to make people, including those we may never meet, happy.

Favorite pastime to drink a beer during?
Football because I’m an american. Oh!! and any other excuse.

If you didn’t work in Beer, what would you do?
I’d be Batman. The only problem is that my parents are alive and I like that. Probably have to figure out how to make it happen… I’ll get back to you.

Best family story?
I have a infant photo of myself being held by Tex Watson.In case you don’t know, he was the actual knife man for the Manson family. He’s in jail and befriended Jesus with his heart. My dad too is friends with Jesus, and at the time teaching at a Bible college. Pen pals form and after a while it turns into “hey wanna meet my brand new baby? the only one I got?” If I ever write an autobiography I know what the cover Photo will be.

What did you want to be when you were three years old?
Be Batman.


A little more about Jesse
I’m currently residing in beautiful Vista CA, I don’t have an eating disorder. I am what they refer to medically as “skinny”. I’m hot because I don’t know that I’m hot. That’s what ironically makes me hot. Weird I know…
