Do you ask questions when you don’t know the answer?

This is a dream job for the ideal candidate. We are looking for a self-starter with experience in both working with other brewers and working autonomously. This is a process oriented job and, while mistakes happen, you must be able to troubleshoot, correct, and learn from them. You must be energetic.
