▪ Managing the profitability of the tap room
▪ Planning and executing events in the tap room – often working with other groups to do so
▪ Working with the founders to properly market the tap room
▪ All other day to day activities necessary to keep the tap room running.
The taproom manager will report to the founders of Short Fuse Brewing.
