Amanda

Burlington, VT

Where do you think the name #9 comes from? (be original, damn it)
#9 was perfectly fine for a just-in-time-bottle-cap-rhyme.

What's your favorite Magic Hat Beer?
Graupel and hI.P.A. tie for first.

Do you have any hidden talent you'd like to share?
I can hula hoop for hours whilst drinking beer at the same time!

Favorite live music show you saw or wish to see.
So hard to pick just one, but the Flaming Lips with Magic Hat colleagues at a crazy, muddy music festival was pretty incredible.

If you were a musical instrument what would you be and why?
A tenor saxophone. Classy, jazzy and often found in dark, swanky bars.


Nate

Pittsburgh, PA

What's your favorite Magic Hat Beer?
Electric Peel. Try it. Love it. Ask for another.

Where do you think the name #9 comes from? (be original, damn it)
Why #9? I think #9 stands for the combined amount of letters in "BT, Vermont." BT is an abbreviation for Burlington, which has 10 letters, or else I would've said that was the reasoning behind #9. Obviously, I have no clue why it's called #9, and you don't either.

Favorite live music show you saw or wish to see.
Favorite live show I've ever seen was probably Stevie Wonder followed by Jay Z at Bonnaroo 2010. Amazing. Those I wish to see? Well, that list would go on and on and...

Do you have any hidden talent you'd like to share?
Won 'Best Singer' my Senior year, despite never being in a play, musical, or any performance, really. If that's not talent, then I don't know what is.

If you were a musical instrument what would you be and why?
Hmm, probably the bass. Usually puts the entire song on it's back, creating that beat everyone can jive to. But can also get a little funky when it wants to.


Clare

Cleveland, OH

Any nicknames you'd like folks to know?
Grizzly Clare, but unfortunately mostly known as Hairball

Where do you think the name #9 comes from? (be original, damn it)
Cats have 9 lives, and all the cool cats drink #9.

What's your favorite Magic Hat Beer?
It's a tie between hI.P.A. and Electric Peel

Do you have any hidden talent you'd like to share? (i.e. rub your tummy and pat your head at the same time - you get the idea)
Expert movie quoter – You probably wouldn't want to watch Titanic with me

If you were a musical instrument what would you be and why?
A harmonica, because all of the best artists played a harmonica (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Hanson…)

Favorite live music show you saw or wish to see.
Radiohead – Thom Yorke is a genius

Tell us your best knock-knock joke. (or any kind of joke)
What do you get when you cross an elephant with a fish? Swimming trunks!


Ben

Hudson Valley, NY

If you were a musical instrument what would you be and why?
I'd be a Saxaphone, because everyone loves good Sax.

Any nicknames you'd like folks to know?
Chewie, Ben Grimm (Thanks Martin)

What is your favorite Magic Hat Beer?
Electric Peel! Also the tried and true #9

Do you have any hidden talent you'd like to share? (i.e. rub your tummy and pat your head at the same time - you get the idea)
I paint often and cook even more. From a family of cooks. I love food!

Favorite live music show you saw or wish to see.
I wish to see ShapeShifter live one of these days.


Michael

Macomb & Oakland Counties, MI

If you were a musical instrument what would you be and why?
I would be an Electric Violin. I would want to be this because they are awesome, rare and create such a unique sound.

What's your favorite Magic Hat beer?
My favorite Magic Hat beer is Hop Drip.

Do you have any hidden talent you'd like to share?
I can hide my hidden talents extremely well..
