Jennifer Partee made a calculated decision with her husband to join the craft beer movement in upstate New York.
In 2009, Jennifer pulled her upstate New York roots and moved to Daytona Beach to pursue her dream nursing job where she provides medical event logistics for a sports entertainment company.
What she didn’t realize was that not only did she uproot her life but also her preferred alcoholic beverage! Florida’s wine region is not conducive to vinting the typical Finger Lakes white wines. As a compromise, she developed a taste for beer that evolved (thankfully!) to craft beer.
Appreciating the Florida craft beer movement and promoting good health through nursing progressed to creating Fleur De Lis Brew Works. The Partee’s upstate New York homestead was a natural fit for a craft brewery focusing on locally sourced ingredients as a farm brewery. Joining with her brother- and sister-in-laws, their brewery is a family partnership.
Because life isn’t about craft beer alone, Jennifer continues her day job as a registered nurse. She also enjoys baking and gardening during the rest of her free time.
