Help Wanted

I considered several ways to post these job openings.  I decided putting them in the blog/news section of the website was the way to do it, linked from our social media accounts.

I have not posted a blog entry since before we opened, so I considered deleting all of the old entries and just having this one.  However, when I read through all of the old blog posts I found them to be so funny and entertaining that I decided to leave them up.  The funniest part of it all is how I have not had time to put together a blog post since Half Batch Brewing opened.

Anyway, we have a couple of spots on the Half Batch team open.  If you are interested, send an email with the job title in the subject line to nate@halfbatchbrewing.com.  In your email include a little about yourself/cover letter/resume or job experience.
