Director of Operations
Joseph Pampinella one of the best known and most respected craft beer authorities in the state he’s also widely recognized as an eminently successful restaurant/pub general manager. His years of experience transforming establishments into destination stops for beer, wine, and food aficionados will be showcased in his new position as Director of Operations at The Beer Spot and Grill.
Joe’s gregarious and affable personality is always on display at the bar or in the restaurant. He makes it a point to personally do everything he can to enhance a customer’s experience. And when it comes to craft beer, he’s one expert ready and willing to share his passion and knowledge. It’s common to see Joe in conversation with a patron extolling the amazing flavors in craft beer and how to best pair them with food. He is a true “Pied Piper of Good Beer” with an almost impossible to resist siren call.
Joe is a lifelong restaurant professional. His intimate knowledge and understanding of the many facets of the business has placed him in high regard not only with the public but also with industry insiders. The respect he has earned over the years plus his drive and determination recently enabled him to do the impossible- gather nearly 40 brewers, distributors, and reps in a once in a lifetime event at which dozens of rare and elusive craft beers were being poured. It was a seminal moment in New Jersey beer/bar history and it was entirely due to our new Director of Operations.
We’re most proud and happy that Joe has joined our team. You can expect big things here at the Beer Spot and Grill with him on board. So get ready, it’s going to one great adventure!
