We're hiring! Hopewell Brewing Company is seeking a highly motivated and knowledgeable bartender to add to its taproom team.

All of our staff is expected to have a solid foundation in beer and beer service. Besides the basics of being able to sell and pour beer, bartenders need to be familiar with a range of different beer styles and how they are made. Bartenders need a firm grasp on the hop, yeast and malt profiles of each of our beers and how those flavors come together on our menu. Bartenders should be able to speak comfortably not only about beer, but about our company, our equipment and upcoming projects as well.

Interest in beer production and process
Bartending or equivalent food/beverage customer service experience
- Must be able to lift to 50lbs
Our front of house team acts as the face of Hopewell in the space where we see the most customer interaction. Guests of all types and levels of enthusiasm should feel welcomed and comfortable in our tap room.
Bartenders also need to be extremely proficient in prioritizing and multitasking. Our taproom can get very busy and team members should be able to take multiple orders, carry and pour multiple beers while keeping tabs organized and up-to-date. Bartenders need to remain calm, patient and friendly in a high-volume environment, while providing quick and thorough service.
Cleanliness is a huge part of our brand at Hopewell. Our FOH team is charged with maintaining the aesthetics of our tap room before, during and after service. Chairs should be pushed in, tables wiped off, trash thrown away and menus/coasters organized. There shouldn’t be dirty glassware, smudges or spills anywhere on the floor or behind the bar. Attention to detail is key. Bartenders are often working alone and need to take full responsibility for every aspect of service.
We are a very small team and we all get our hands dirty. All bartenders are required to clean bathrooms, mop floors and take trash out.
