Supervisor: Taproom SE8

'Craft beer ought to be for everyone’. This idea spurred one man to start Hop Stuff Brewery in 2013. He unbuttoned his white-collar life to brew craft beer to share with anyone - whether a green bottle beer drinker, a craft aficionado or his sweet old grandma. From the start, it’s all about making craft beer easier to get into.

Hop Stuff has since grown to a team of beer maniacs backed by over 650 investors. More staff, a new brewery and more Taprooms on the way. Hop Stuff is growing.

But in the words of The Carpenters, ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’. So, if you want to be part of the journey and contribute to a rapidly growing brewery and on trade business, read on.

Our Taprooms bring the best of brewery vibes to local neighbourhoods; tons of craft beer and messy indulgent food, all within warm low-fi feels.

The role of our supervisor is about ensuring service runs smoother than an imperial milk stout; looking after guests and enforcing standards throughout. A supervisor will be the benchmark in expectations overseeing both drink and food service, the vibe in the bar, and bending over backwards to look after customers. Supervisors report to the General Manager.
