Flying Bike is Hiring!

Currently seeking beertenders

Flying Bike Cooperative Brewery is one of only a handful of cooperative breweries in the United States.  Come be a part of history with us at our tasting room & brewery in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle.  We are seeking enthusiastic “Beertender(s)” to help us maintain a unique and successful brewery and tasting room experience for our membership and the general public.

 

Our Beertenders are much more than bartenders, they are the face and execution of the cooperative brewery model.  They serve the member driven beer of the Cooperative and they also serve as a wealth of information on our Cooperative, the cooperative business model, and of course beer itself.  As staff and a member beertenders get to see the inside workings of how a Cooperative brewery is run.

 

This job is fun and dynamic and the right staffers will work independently and together to inspire and channel the support of our over 1,800-strong membership and enthusiastically accept and direct the collective power that is a member-owned brewery.
