We learned that he served as a New York City firefighter as a part of the FDNY for eight years. He has an amazing sense of humor and we hear him do a lot of laughing but he also served his community in one of the most dangerous jobs in public service. It wasn’t just a passing fancy either. Eight years is a long time to keep going out and putting your life on the line to save others. He is to be commended for his service.

Although both of the other pals in the show are vocal about their romantic relationships, Brian doesn’t say much. We learned that he is not currently involved with anyone, or if he is he isn’t talking about it. He prefers to keep this aspect of his personal life private. We learned that in the past he dated a girl who was a makeup artist for “Impractical Jokers” and that the relationship progressed to the point of the two getting engaged. We’re assuming that it’s a sore spot for Q because after becoming engaged to marry him, she left him for a man who was serving as a police officer.

Quinn got into some big trouble when he was on a trip to Germany in 2009. While he was in the country, a scene broke out and the German Police arrested him for disorderly conduct.

The other guys had to come and bail him out of jail.

Brian Quinn is a craft beer enthusiast. He is particularly interested in one craft beer in particular. The Rubsam & Hormann brand of Pilsner is among his favorites. He also loves the history behind many of the 19th-century brewers and has visited some of the cemeteries in Staten Island. He is bringing this beer back through his new craft beer business and he admits that he’s having a lot of fun as a brewer as well as getting into the history of the brewers who were active during the 19th century. He has made it his mission to “reintroduce” New Yorkers to the brew from yesteryear. Q is an interesting guy who takes an active interest in the city that he was born and raised in and this even extends to the various beermakers who established their businesses in the area. He is passionate about sharing the things that he loves dearly with his fellow New Yorkers and craft beer just happens to be one of them. We’ll have to keep an eye on his new endeavor to see how well he fares.
