We are growing at an incredible pace, having recently moved into a new 30,000sq foot production facility, built a taproom, and undergone a massive re-branding. We have the equipment, a great location, and a community thirsty for our beer, and we're poised to enter new markets and continue to grow. Our brewing team is tight-knit and operates more like a family than co-workers. We work hard -- very hard -- but we also take time to enjoy the fruits of our labor, drink good beer, and spend time with our families.
The ideal candidate is a hard worker who is committed, passionate about making great beer and interested in working with us as we grow. We have everything we need to become a great packaging brewery, and this individual is going to be integral in helping us keep the beer flowing.
