Bulls Eye Nov 2012

Bull's Eye header

By LuLu

This month our Bull’s Eye is someone people all over the USA may know or recognize. Bill Grotto is the National Special Events Manager for Twisted Tea. Although he resides in the Fort Lauderdale area now, he is originally from Long Island, New York. His career with Twisted Tea moved him to Florida (along with the “12 month riding season”) to be the Regional manager in 2004. The job takes him to all the exciting events we plan and save for! His itinerary starts with Daytona Bike Week, to Arizona, to Leesburg, to Panama City, to Ohio, to Americade in Lake George, New York, to Iowa Grand, to Sturgis, to Thunder Beach, to Biketoberfest and then to Lonestar in Texas. Needless to say at the end of the “ride around America’ a lot of people are Tea drinkers!

Bill is 42. He has a degree in hotel/restaurant management that he received from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. He had the typical story of starting with minibikes to Mopeds and moving up to motorcycles. His first bike was a Honda Nighthawk at about 18 years old. Little did he know that he would end up owning 4 bikes and being the person responsible for the Twisted Tea Baggin’ Wagon a 1968 restored Servi-Car. His own garage contains a 2003 Roadking, 2000 Heritage Springer, 2006 “Bare Knuckle” Chopper and a1989 custom Softail Bobber.

After college Bill did a 4 year stint in the Navy as a “hash slinger” stationed in Philadelphia, PA on the USS Detroit. It must have been there that he developed his love of cooking and GIRLS…Bill is single and one of his past times in making his own candy!!!! Such a sweet thing! He loves his bikes, riding and playing guitar.

Bill enjoys riding the restored Servi-Car, talking motorcycles to customers and making friends along the way, but he said the best part of his job is when someone tries a Twisted Tea for the first time and says “This really does taste good!” If you see Bill out and about at events please go up and say hi, he is just a super guy that loves the motorcycle community and he’ll be happy to introduce you to Twisted Tea!
