We’re looking for a Taproom & Webshop Manager to join our team at Alphabet Brewing Company in Manchester!
We began brewing in our Ardwick railway arch in 2014 - since then we have developed a following for a core range of hop-forward and fruit-led session beers, as well as a glut of special releases that includes everything from traditional brewing styles to Salted Caramel Imperial Stouts and bold, hoppy, modern IPAs.
We are looking for an enthusiastic new member of our team in a combined role, managing both our taproom and webshop. We run our on-site taproom on Fridays 5-10pm and Saturdays 12-10pm, pouring 10 lines of the freshest Alphabet releases alongside guest beers, natural wine, cider and soft drinks. Our busy webshop had 4.5k orders in 2021 and offers both national and direct local delivery. We have a firm commitment to equality and diversity, and welcome applications from those who are underrepresented in the brewing industry.
To apply, please send us your CV with a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line “Taproom & Webshop Manager Application - <your name>”. Applications will be accepted until 31st January 2022.
