Jackson Kleingartner

Jackson Kleingartner – Cook

I am a cook at NWBP, and my job includes cooking, creating specials, organizing, cleaning, etc. I enjoy playing drums (here’s the shameless plug for my band Motherwind, check us out), cooking, learning about biochemical processes, and I like long walks on the beach.

Colton Smith

Colton Smith – Cook / Brewing Assistant

Brewing assistant by day and cook by night. I am responsible for all the tasks in the brewery that the brewmaster refuses to do like cleaning tanks, cleaning kegs, packing and stacking freshly canned beer. If it’s a dirty job in the brewery, I’m probably the man doing it! Then like Superman I change my cape, cap & shoes to fly into the kitchen to cook and do more cleaning. I’m also the founder and CEO of Beef River Fly company. When I don’t have dishpan hands, you can find me outside hunting and fishing.

Cindy Amundson

Cindy Amundson – Bartender

I’m Cindy and I’ve been at NWBP for 4.5 yrs. Not only am I the day bartender but also the mom to this crazy group! Most of the crew calls me mama Cindy. I love the outdoors. I’m an active member of the Osseo Area Rod and Gun Club. When I’m not spending time hunting in the “She-Shed” my husband Eric built for me, you can find me spoiling my grand kids.

I’m just a Taya of all trades you can say! When not out on the restaurant floor, I’m probably in back helping the kitchen guys, working off-site catering jobs or doing whatever other random jobs need to be done. Besides working at Northwoods, I work as a CNA. I also like to longboard.
