As Tap Room Manager, you will run one of Hampton Road’s most exciting bars, manage rentals and on-site event sales, and generate new sales through merchandise, loyalty programs, and packaged goods. Most importantly, you will connect with our amazing customers who share our deep commitment to creating a vibrant community around the craft scene experience.
