Front of House / Shift Leader (Thrive City Taproom)

Company Overview

Harmonic Brewing

Harmonic Brewing Website
Harmonic Brewing launched in Summer 2015 in Dogpatch, San Francisco, with the goal of welcoming people from all walks of life to commune over a variety of balanced, high quality beer styles. Our open plan brewery/taproom is the heart & soul of our operation, and during COVID we are safely & successfully operating one of the largest outdoor patio & street scenes in SF. We also self-distribute our beer to select bars, restaurants, and bottle shops, almost entirely within 10 miles.

Harmonic Brewing Thrive City, our high profile 2nd taproom launching in Spring 2021, is located in the public plaza surrounding San Francisco’s Chase Center arena, home of the Golden State Warriors. We will enjoy 1,500 sq ft interior dining space and 2,000 sq ft outdoor patio, with sweeping views of the Bay. The taproom will operate a fast-casual, “beer & bites” format with counter service, online table ordering & running, and takeout. The menu will feature Harmonic beer (of course), as well as limited guest beer, cider, and wine selections, and gourmet food from a combination of Neighbor Bakehouse and our on-site kitchen. Opening hours will focus on Wednesday-Sunday afternoons & evenings. As local COVID conditions hopefully improve, and the Chase Center/Warriors are able to have fans attend events, hours will increase significantly and more staff will be hired.

We are seeking hardworking, service-oriented individuals to join our team, as we reemerge from the COVID crisis better than ever.
