JOBS


The Public Events Manager (PEM) at Threes Brewing is a key member of the full-time staff, focused on executing events that drive tangible impact to the business and memorable experiences for our patrons. The PEM reports directly to the Events Director and works as the primary point of contact during all phases of the process once a public event idea graduates from the concept to the execution phase.
