Full Role Description

A Hoppy Place are looking for part time shift workers for predominantly (but not limited to) Friday and Saturday cover

About us

A Hoppy Place are a fouryear old craft beer bottleshop and taproom with outlets in Windsor and Maidenhead.

We are three time CAMRA pub of the year for Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead as well as SIBA (The Society of Independent Brewers, who represent nearly 100 of the most craft forward UK breweries) Craft Beer Retailer of the Year for 2021, and 2023

We founded in 2019 with the goal to make our passion our career, and this hiring is the next step in a business plan to see us with multiple sites, with a target of 4+ sites and beyond.

We are looking to add to our family of staff, and are always open to this part time role for now potentially becoming permanent in future.

For us, beer transcends boundaries. From traditional cask ales presented well, to the most wacky of craft beers with adjuncts aplenty, if it’s beer produced for beer’s sake, we’re here for it. And our spaces are inclusive, welcoming spaces for all backgrounds and beliefs of patron: So long as they abide by our one simple rule: Don’t be a dick. 

We’re also inclusive of other drinks! Too many craft venues turn their nose up at a wine drinker. To do so is to risk losing the group. We pride ourselves on not only having the best beer selection in Berkshire, but also of catering well to wine, cider, spirit and AF drinkers.

Craft Beer For All.

Available immediately.

About You

First and foremost, we are known for knowing our beer. We are an outlet providing the very best of local, national and international beer to our community. Beer must be your passion. Whatever your current level of knowledge [training and certification is provided], you need to want to know more. This goes right up to our co-owners and is expected of everyone.

• Serve customers
• Restock fridges
• Pick web orders
• Clean and manage the bar according to our standard operating procedures
• Change kegs and manage the cellar
• Plan-ahead on beer orders, working with all the staff to keep your tap wall exciting and engaging.
• Assisting the general manager with opening and closing
• Social media advocacy
• Travel between both sites (7 miles apart, with train links and an easy drive if you have a (not required) license) as shifts will be in both locations (with your preference on a ‘main site’)

• And most importantly: Chat with our regulars, become ‘one of the team’ and grow
with us.

We’d love, to a large degree, you to become “one of our friendship group” – we are working together to build a company we all want to be a part of.

• Three time consecutive pub of the year in Windsor and Maidenhead

We offer:

We want you to be:

• Experienced in hospitality OR craft beer (we can patch one side or the other, offer good training and are friendly faces)
• Able to multitask
• Keen to work as part of a team
• Able to stay with us for the medium to long term – we like to build our teams out and ideally, this wouldn’t just be a 1-3 month thing. Although, at the moment – we’re short for Christmas and needs must! Ask and let’s find out.
