In 2014, Jesse left his IT Executive career path in pursuit of entrepreneurship. While his new web design business was moving along as expected, he didn’t feel fulfilled by it. He felt called to give but just didn’t know where to start. After long conversations with his wife, family, friends, and co-founders Adam and Josh, Overflow Taps was born.
The Overflow business plan was nearly complete before it even began. This is because Adam created a similar plan in college for a tap house. Whether it be brewing or enjoying an ice cold pint, he has always had a passion for craft beer. Adam run’s day-to-day operations, financial analytics, and helps us maximize our efficiency and impact.
Josh assists with maintenance and enjoys filling in behind the bar when needed. He enjoys homebrewing and spending time in the outdoors with his dog, Lucy.
Family is everything to Lesley. In 2012, she was blessed with her son Emmett. Her awesome personality helped her transition well from a Barista role at Buzz Thru, to serving craft beer with us. She’ll be the first to admit she’s still getting a feel for craft beer, but loves every minute of it! She's also the manager at our Lynden location.
Peter is so excited to become a part of the Overflow team! He enjoys serving others in the community where he grew up and getting the opportunity to meet new people. He has a huge passion for wakeboarding and has been competing since 2014. He's excited to use that same passion to learn more about craft beer. He's also the manager at our Barkley Village location.
Alexa is passionate about family, helping people, and giving back to the community which is what led her to Overflow Taps. When not working, Alexa loves to be coaching volleyball, boating, hiking, or at Cougar football games. She is excited to be learn more about craft beers and help others love beer as much as she does.
Family and friends are the most important things in my life & I cherish the time I get to spend with them! I'm a makeup artist on the side but on days off I enjoy spending time outside sunny days whether it's on the lake, hiking with my dog or just enjoying food with friends. So excited to join the overflow team and learn more about beer and how it's made but also being apart of such a great cause as well!
In his free time, Josh likes to enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest by exploring the outdoors with his dog Kaia. When not adventuring with his dog, he enjoys grilling and watching Seahawks football with friends. Josh is excited to be a part of the Overflow Taps team as well as a member of a vibrant, fun, and exciting community that is just as passionate about craft beer as he is.
Jenny loves long days spent in the mountains and believes the best way to finish off a big adventure is with craft beer in good company. An east coast native, she is excited for the opportunity to become more involved in her new community of Bellingham as well as contribute to the global community as part of the Overflow team.
I am a Bellingham native, and a WWU alumnus. I am passionate about philosophy and politics, and have been starting to channel my passion and curiosity into the world of craft beer as well. I am excited to join Overflow, serve the local community, and learn even more about different kinds of beer!
I moved up here from Seattle in May and love my new community! If I'm not out playing with my husband and our dogs, I can most likely be found coaching swim team.
Dylan couldn’t be more stoked to be working for Overflow Taps and being able to give back on a global scale. If he isn’t behind the bar pouring hop-elicious beers, you can most likely find him in the mountains. He loves to ski which is a big part of why he moved over to the west side of the state to go to school. He has always had a passion for craft beer and is excited for the opportunities to come.
If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water” (Loren Eiseley). This is a favorite quote I heard many years ago and also one of the reasons I am so happy to be a part of Team Overflow! I believe water is magical, and that clean water as a right every human should have access too. I am passionate about connecting people to the environment, which lead me to pursuing a degree in Environmental Education at Western Washington University. In my free time I try to spend as much time outside as possible whether its skiing, biking, climbing or just hanging out! I look forward to continue to spread awareness on the global water crisis while serving and learning more about craft beer!
