You’ll put the spirit in spirits, building enthusiasm and loyalty for the awesome beverages you produce through staff engagement and education and interaction with our parched patrons. While there is intense creativity in every bottle we produce, you will develop and adhere to recipes and SOPs to achieve the best possible consistency of taste and experience for our spirited fans. You’ll do a lot of other stuff and have fun doing it all in the name of smooth, delicious, Off-centered shots. This is righteous work, people.

Prior supervisory experience is helpful; a strong proclivity toward building awesome coworker relations is a must. Must be able to lift 55 pounds, twist/turn, reach over shoulders, bend/stoop and stand/walk on a continual basis. While this isn’t a beer gig, an appreciation of our beers and enthusiasm for the craft industry as a whole is also pretty important to us!
