    Kitchen Manager - Olympia, WA Brewpub


    About Well 80
    Our brewpub, Well 80 Brewhouse, is a ~200 seat restaurant and bar featuring an on-display 10bbl brewery. We utilize an original Downtown Olympia artesian well - number 80 of 96 - which provides us with crystal-clear pure water year-round. Artesian water is historically relevant to Olympia’s history as a brewing town, and we’re proud to be bringing “Well Made Beer” back to the community. Our building has an open floor plan with high ceilings and exposed trusses, an all-ages section and a 21+ bar, indoor and outdoor seating, and a cozy lounge area with a fireplace and tv. The menu is simple, unique and fun, with original takes on pizza, burgers, sandwiches, apps, salads, popcorn, and more. Our bar serves Well 80 ales and lagers, guest beers and ciders, wine, and cocktails.

Display empathy and compassion. “Service is the technical delivery of a product, hospitality is how the delivery of that product makes its recipient feel.” -Danny Meyer, CEO and Founder, Union Street Hospitality Group

    -Passion: Take pride in what we do while on the job and in the community, and have a good time doing it.
