We're looking for someone that will lead our taproom operations and staff, enhance our customers' experience, and throw rad parties.
Job Title: Head of Hospitality (Full Time)
Reports To: Operations Manager
Wellspent Brewing Company opened in March 2018. Our Midtown taproom has 80 seats inside and a large outdoor Courtyard. We use our small kitchen to offer tamales from The Tamale Man and small snacks from local vendors.
Wellspent is focused on serving high-quality, yeast-driven beers in a positive, inviting, comfortable space. As one of St. Louis’ smallest breweries, our taproom is the focal point of our brand and the driving force of our business. Nearly all our beer is either consumed in or purchased from our taproom. And so, our mission is to provide taproom guests with an experience and service that are both memorable and consistent.
Wellspent will reopen under new ownership in February 2020 with the original brewing staff.
In short, the Head of Hospitality will work with our team to ensure each customer’s experience is nothing short of exceptional.
Smooth operation of the taproom is the core focus: ensuring employees are appropriately scheduled and informed, that the taproom environment aligns with Wellspent standards and brand identity, and that all beers are served at their absolute best.
The Head of Hospitality is also responsible for curating and executing taproom events, coordinating private parties, and acting as a brand ambassador for Wellspent.
