-  Infectiously enthusiastic and can-do attitude - a thirst to learn, to teach others, and an obsessive commitment to our brewery’s success is an absolute must.

-  “We” mentality versus “I” mentality – team player who considers that any success an individual is due to the collective strength of the team.

-   Understand and embrace Reuben’s beers, which includes developing and maintaining a detailed knowledge of the differences, and similarities, between our brews, our methods, and Reuben’s as a whole and those of other craft brewers and mass-market beer producers
