Alicia Beer's Automotive Office Manager When you walk through our doors, Alicia is most likely the first person who greets you! We are very thankful and blessed to have her as a part of our team! She began her adventure in the automotive industry two years ago as a parts driver. Her favorite part of her job is our customers. “There are customers who have come to Beer’s for years who you become close with and then the new customers with whom you get to build that relationship.” Away from work Alicia enjoys spending time with her son and boyfriend, finding something new to experience. Whether they are going to car shows, camping, nature hikes or vacations down to Texas to see family, Alicia enjoys it all. She grew up as an “Army Brat,” which means her family moved somewhere new every few years. As an adult, she has settled down more, but still loves to travel.

If you have been to Beer’s Automotive, you most likely have spoken personally with our Service Manager, Kyle Hodge, and have experienced his energetic personality. Kyle keeps things moving! We feel very thankful and blessed to have him at Beer’s! Kyle has always loved cars and anything with an engine. He states, “I always knew I would work on vehicles as a career.” In high school he did body work part time. After school he realized he didn’t enjoy body work as much, so he changed his paths and has “never regretted it.” His favorite aspect as the Service Manager is all the knowledge gleaned from learning what makes vehicles tick. In addition, experiencing all the cool vehicles he has had the pleasure of working on is a plus. Kyle believes working on vehicles is his calling. At Beer’s he especially enjoys working directly with customers too. Spending time with his wife, Amanda, is what ... read more

Let’s peek in to the life of our second ASE Technician. Brad has been working for Beer’s since 2015 and is his first “official” job in the automotive industry. However, he has been wrenching with his father ever since he could turn a wrench! He is currently working towards becoming an ASE Master Technician. Brad’s favorite part of his job is being able to work on and learn so much about many different cars and trucks. “I also enjoy everybody I work with. Everybody has always been nice and welcoming, which makes it nice and easy to come to work. . . . it is one of the cleanest shops in town. I couldn’t ask for a better job.” We are blessed to have Brad at Beer’s and appreciate his willingness and eagerness to get the job done right.

Let's take a look back in history . . . . . .to see how Beer’s came into being and the man who started it all. Beer’s Automotive’s infancy was in 1970 when Joel Beer, at 31 years of age, opened his first auto repair shop. It was a family owned and run business under the name of Beer's Workshop and was located on Dale Avenue in Shelby, Ohio. Then, in 1972 the business became Beer and Gates. Three years later, Joel sold his part of the auto repair business and began working as a mechanic for RG Beer Construction. Out of his own home, Joel opened Beer’s Repair in 1980. After running his at home auto repair business for 2 years, he moved the location of Beer’s Repair to a shop on Mansfield Avenue in Shelby. Joel built the present building at the 225 North Gamble Street in Shelby, Ohio location in 1990. Joel semi-retired in 2002 and in 2009 fully retired. Joel may be “fully retired,” but he keeps plenty busy. Most days he c ... read more
