Since then, Pike has been busy handcrafting beers of character and growing a company that fosters an atmosphere of fun, beer trivia and community connections. For the past three decades, Pike Brewing Company has offered an environment which engages both customers and employees.

    Here's who we’re looking for: A creative, outgoing, attentive, poised self-starter who enjoys working with people and driving for successful results. A person who loves interacting with the public, has a passion for service, is driven to build the business, one client at a time… and, of course, has a love for the beer industry.
