Cold Spring Brewing Employee Spotlight – Rocky Lindberg

With all the uncertainty in the world today, one thing we’re always grateful for is our
hardworking, dedicated and positive employees. For our April Cold Spring Brewing Company Employee Spotlight, there is no one who expresses these qualities better than our Plant B Night Manager – Rocky Lindberg!

Originally from Duluth, Rocky moved to St. Cloud while he was in elementary school and has remained in the area ever since. In his role at CSBC, Rocky works hard to ensure his team is well-trained, supported and inspired to create high-quality beverages that always surpass our clients’ expectations. He has been a part of the CSBC team for almost 15 years.

“I learned about this opportunity from my brother who was a shift lead at the time,” said Rocky. “I was told that the brewery was a local company that offered great pay and a fun work environment – now, I’ve been here for almost 15 years!”

As Plant B Night Shift Manager, Rocky makes sure the brewhouse’s night shift team is capable of running an efficient production line while maintaining high yields for their high-quality brews – all while promoting a safe work environment.

“My goal is to make sure my team does everything we can to be the fastest and most efficient beverage production line in the country while making sure each member is in a position to succeed,” explained Rocky. “Because of my team’s hard work, we’re well on our way.”

To name a few of Rocky’s other day-to-day duties, he stays busy by interviewing and hiring team members that share in the company’s goals, attending and presenting at meetings, learning how to run the equipment properly, providing one-on-one coaching sessions, communicating daily with team members, completing safety training procedures and quality assurance audits, and keeping other CSBC departments informed, among other responsibilities. To say Rocky helps the CSBC machine run smoothly is an understatement. We couldn’t do it without him.

CSBC is growing and changing, and Rocky is looking forward to the company’s future- including the production of the new operating plant.

“I’m interested in taking on the challenge of the developing Line 5 plant, which is a new addition up here at Plant B,” Rocky shared. “With the addition of a new facility comes new machines and new opportunities. It will no doubt be a fun, mind-blowing experience to see how it all comes together, much like Line 4 was two years ago.”
