    If you're not the best in the world...

    and not currently employed, we don't want you. Nice! Good luck with your new, egomaniacal, job jumping, next-to-God, stud brewer. From this guy with lots of experience from the largest brewery in the US, to regional to local, you might consider someone who is 'hungry' as they might work harder, have less attitude, and knock the job out without so much as a whimper. Couldn't believe this posting.

    As a small business owner I in no way look at people currently unemployed as unemployable or inferior workers. In fact before I opened Urban Family, I was unemployed for a period time. I also 100% agree that in most cases the reverse of this is true, previously unemployed workers tend to work harder and are more loyal long term than others. We currently employ 4 people in our bar that were unemployed when we hired them.

    With that being said, as I'm sure many of you know, owning and operating a business requieres difficult choices to be made all the time. Some of these choices may come across one way but in fact may be made for entirely different reasons altogether.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have have any questions or issues
