Friday update

Got news on several places hiring for some really neat positions. First of all, Madison Growler inside the Cash Saver on Madison in Midtown is looking to hire someone. They describe the job as a first step in your journey of beer, and could well lead to a career working for breweries or distributors. Ideally they are looking for full-time but for the right candidate would consider part-time. More details

That’s not the only beer-related job out there, though. Wiseacre Brewing Co. is now hiring taproom staff for its new Downtown location at B.B. King and Butler, as well as for its original location on Broad. They’re looking with people with a passion for beer. This job offers upward mobility as well, with people on Wiseacre’s sales staff and administrative staff who started in the taproom. If interested, visit the Careers section of the brewery’s website.
