Medusa Brewing Company is always seeking hard-working, friendly, and knowledgeable individuals to become a part of our family here in Hudson. Check out what's available below and get in touch!
Taproom Beertender (Part-Time)
Flexible hours - Inquire about available schedules
Situated on Main Street in the bustling downtown of Hudson, our brewery & taproom has quickly become a destination, and is a large part of the town's ever-growing allure. We are a second home to wonderful groups of locals who we consider our dear friends, and act as hosts to many area events and activities. At the heart of the Medusa experience is our taproom. A large, warmly-decorated, 130-seat space where we offer multiple different pour sizes of our beers. The environment, while relaxed and thought-provoking for guests, can often go from a quiet afternoon of pouring beer to an all-hands-on-deck night of fast-paced pouring, friendly educating, cleaning, and serving. In other words, our team knows how to hustle, BIG TIME. The person to fill this role must be comfortable while under pressure, and be able to maintain a team-player attitude at all times.
We are a close family of fun, personable, beer-loving people, and we look out for each other. We work hard. We work VERY hard, but we also play hard. We have no room for slack, and no tolerance for bad attitudes. Respect is one of the core values at Medusa Brewing Company, and is a cornerstone in our approach to business, people, and beer.
