Seeking an experienced bartender for our fast-paced brewery taproom, bottle shop, and beer garden!

We’re looking for an experienced bartender to join our growing team! The Glass Jug started as a bottle shop, and we moved into a new, larger space complete with a brewery and beer garden in February, 2018. We are proud to be a high traffic, popular spot, and we're looking for a new team member who can come in and hit the ground running.

This position will start between 18 and 23 hours most weeks (3-4 shifts) with room for growth. Evening and weekend availability is required. Staff must be able to arrive at work no later than 5pm for weekday shifts. (So, if you have a day job and can’t get here until after 5, we’re sorry, but this is not a fit for you.) Being a bartender at The Glass Jug Beer Lab offers a great opportunity to expand your beer knowledge and grow your bartending expertise while getting to know the local beer-loving community. We pride ourselves on our commitment to help every member of our team grow in their areas of interest. Though it is not required, our bartenders are encouraged to start or lead programs, and they are often able to contribute via event leadership, education initiatives, club participation, etc.
