  • Tasting Room Manager - MainStage Brewing Company - Lyons CO

    Title: Tasting Room Manager
    Reports to: Founders
    MainStage Brewing Company is looking for a Tasting Room Manager! MainStage is a new brewery launching in Lyons, CO this spring. Founded in 2020, MainStage Brewing Company is situated in a historical 19th century building located on Main Street in Lyons. Bringing new life to the west end of Main Street with an expansive outdoor patio, MainStage focuses on the best that Colorado has to offer, a great beer in hand, 300+ days of sunshine, and live music! MainStage’s mission is to build community by providing fantastic beer, great music, and a place for people to come together.

    What we are looking for:
    We are looking for a creative and passionate leader to help build and train a new staff, work with founders to establish best (and new) practices, and put their stamp on a new company. We are all about unconventional backgrounds, different experiences than ours, and creative thinking. Customer service and team leadership skills are critical for this position, and we feel those skills can come from many backgrounds or experiences. Success in this position will require flexibility as we all learn on the fly during our opening months, as well as quick thinking, creativity, excellent communication and leadership skills necessary to help build the business and team from the ground up. The ideal candidate has experience in customer facing roles, experience working within flexible teams, and an entrepreneurial mindset. Specific experiences with craft beer, events management, or venue or restaurant openings are a plus, but not required.
    Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply for jobs unless they believe they meet every one of the qualifications as described in a job description. We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. We would encourage you to apply, even if you don't believe you meet our qualifications as described, but instead bring your own unique skills to the position. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out directly to
