I went in for an interview with the brewery manager about a week and a half ago, and yesterday I got an e-mail saying that they would like me to work there and that the co-owner wants to meet with me briefly As of now, it's only a "two Saturdays a month" job, but the guy said in the interview that this might very possibly lead to full-time employment in the future. So glad I went to college for music for 5 years haha.

I am so psyched. My master plan of one day owning a combination tap room/microbrewery/music venue is shaping up.

And for those that ask, it's a smallish brewery in Central PA that brews a seasonal that rhymes with Bad Shelf

Absorb all the information you can and have fun!

On a whim, for some extra income, I interviewed for a part-time job at the only local commercial brewery here (at the time). They offered me a spot on the bottling line ( and StrangeBrew came immediately to mind).

Turns out, due to local restrictions and consideration they operated late at night so it would have been a graveyard to morning shift for me and was in conflict with my primary job.

Ah Well.

Nice! that brewery that rhymes with the pogues makes some great beer. I'd imagine that could be quite a learning experience w/ those guys.

That is awesome I wish I could do something like that.

I'm working as a pro now, but that doesn't mean I'm not still homebrewing. I'm going to see if I can homebrew at work as a way to develop new recipes.
