Resurgence Brewing Company
Director of Brewing Operations
Location: Buffalo, NY
Compensation: Exempt Salary, Full-Time
Start Date: no later than January 2018
Resurgence Brewing Co. (RBC) believes that enjoying a well-crafted brew is an experience in itself. However, it's an experience best shared with friends, both new and old. Our goal is to deliver memorable beer moments to the drinkers of the Greater Buffalo region, whether they're at home, in their favorite bar, or on a tour of our extraordinary brewery.
RBC is located in the heart of the City of Good Neighbors, Buffalo, NY. We’re a young brewery, established in 2013, and on the heels of the “resurgence” of the city (see what we did there?). Many are flocking to the region for our good eats, friendly atmosphere, craft brew scene, new opportunities, and, of course, experiencing all four seasons! We’re a big city, but not too big. There are very few degrees of separation and we value hard work. We’re die hard sports fans, perfectly positioned between the Great Lakes (on Lake Erie) and the Finger Lakes, and rich in history, architecture and the arts.
Why Resurgence Brewing Co.?
We work hard. We have fun. We are a crazy family that loves innovation, creativity and drive. To meet demand Resurgence needs to grow! We are adding a brand new 30 bbl facility to our current 15 bbl making about 3K bbl/yr. We are also adding a 15 bbl sour facility about 30 minutes outside of the city. It’s truly an exciting time to be a part of our company! This individual will spearhead brewery operations and be the “production face” of the company. The possibilities are endless.
We offer a competitive compensation package with PTO, health insurance benefit, 401K, phone allowance, relocation reimbursement and beer!
