We are one of the South West’s finest breweries, based in St Werburghs, Bristol, producing a wide range of exceptional, exciting craft beers. Our taproom and kiosk are part of this brewery and a great place in the community to enjoy our beers.
We have outgrown our current site and so will be opening a second new site in 2022, which means this is a very exciting time to join and be part of a successful growing business and the opportunities that come with this.
Wiper and True is looking for a knowledgeable and experienced person to manage its existing brewery based Taproom and Can Kiosk. The successful candidate will be passionate about serving a variety of the brewery’s freshest and most varied beers. Bottles, cases and merchandise are also sold from the venue via its kiosk too.

With our new site opening next summer, there is a development opportunity for the right person if they want, to take on additional responsibilities in our new taproom site too.
You and your team will deliver extraordinary customer service and an informative and engaging experience for customers at both the taproom and Kiosk. You will strive to hit the weekly sales targets and adapt and innovate to ensure growth is sustained. You will be responsible for the resourcing and training of the taproom team and will manage up to five Front of House staff at one time. You will also work closely with the Marketing team to propose and execute original ideas for promotion and events at the taproom.
