Martin City Brewing Company seeking Brewmaster

If that headline made your loins quiver a bit in excitement, you aren't alone. The 'Brewing Company' part of Martin City Brewing Company is finally starting to take shape, as the restaurant and bar has secured a building to hold a brewhouse, as well as an event rental space, barrel aging room, bottle aging room, and executive event space. In preparation, they are putting the call out in search of someone to spearhead their brewing operations, and help them review and finalize the equipment order and brewhouse design specifications in December.

The full-fledged job listing is below, so take a look, and if any of you brewers out there are interested, let's get the applications rolling in and make this happen soon. Though it may be in the early stages, I'm very pleased to see the brewing aspect of MCBC finally coming to fruition, especially with the number of 'soon-to-be' local breweries that never panned out. Now, of course, the next step for us customers is to start harassing the guys at Martin City Brewing Company about what kind of beers we want to see them make.

Good luck to all who apply! (and on a more serious note to whoever gets hired, DON'T SCREW IT UP)
