COMPENSATION

Hourly plus tips

Monday Night Brewing is a craft beer company founded in 2011 based in Atlanta, GA. Our slogan, “weekends are overrated,” embodies all that we do. We brew balanced, flavorful beers for weeknight consumption and believe in making the best out of each day. Even weekdays.

Please email resume with cover letter to careers@mondaynightbrewing.com. Cover letter should include why you would like to join our team and why you are the ideal candidate. Warning: we do read cover letters, and we are really good at spelling.

Starting in September, Georgia beer laws take a big step forward, joining the rest of the country (literally every other state) in allowing direct sales to consumers. Practically, this means that you will be able to visit a brewery and buy a pint of beer. You can buy one pint, or you can buy many pints. You can also buy up to a case of beer to take home with you.

We will no longer be constrained by the tour system, so say goodbye to the take-home pint glasses and ticket systems. This gives us a lot more flexibility. We will be open longer hours and will have multiple size options for many of our beers available for purchase.

Our hope is that the longer hours will also help cut down on lines and create more of a “hangout” vibe. Swing by for a beer on your drive home without worrying about whether you’ll be able to use up all your tickets before we close. Or even better, work/study at the brewery. Bring a book, bring your computer, jump on our wifi… all while sipping on a delicious small batch beer. To that end, we will be adding more seating and tables. So… starting September 2, here are our new hours.

New Hours

Monday – 4pm-9pm
Tuesday – 4pm-9pm
Wednesday – CLOSED (longer hours coming 2018)
Thursday – 4pm-9pm
Friday – CLOSED (longer hours coming 2018)
Saturday – 12pm-4pm (longer hours coming 2018)
Sunday – CLOSED (longer hours coming 2018)

More Options

Pricing will vary by beer, but in general expect:

  • $2.50-3.00 8oz core and small batch beers
  • $4.50-5.50 16oz core and small batch beers
  • $4+ specialty 8oz beers
  • $10 flights (4 4oz beers)

We’ll be open longer hours at the Garage once it opens up. If you haven’t been to Monday Night in awhile, make sure to come back in September and check out the new vibe and new options!

With the opening of our 2nd production facility this fall, we decided it was time we took a look at our entire portfolio to see how the beers coming out of the Garage will fit in. After weighing many different options, we have some pretty exciting changes to announce, including two new core beers, a complete overhaul of our packaging, and a bold new look. These new beers (and new cans) should start rolling out in late September!

New Beers

Two new beers will round out an already solid core lineup. We have never released a pale ale, so it took us awhile to brew one worthy of the Monday Night name. Han Brolo is that pale ale. It is hazy and crushable, brewed with tons of wheat malt and Simcoe, Mosaic, and Mandarina Bavaria hops to give it a nice, juicy bite.

And for our next trick… Dr. Robot. Dr. Robot is a blackberry lemon sour, brewed on a pilsner base and then soured. This is one tart, refreshing beer, and the blackberry and lemon additions add complexity and flavor. These two beers will take the spots of Eye Patch Ale and Nerd Alert.

New Packaging

We’re moving all core beers, seasonal beers, and Black Tie beers to 12oz cans. Core and seasonal offerings will be in 6-packs. Black Tie beers, such as Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt, will come in 4-packs. Boom. You’re welcome.

New Look

We have had the same packaging for almost 6 years now, and while it has served us well, it hasn’t been as versatile as we’d like, given the current craft beer environment. After an extensive design process involving hundreds of designs, consumer testing, and a bunch of whining, we’ve landed on something we’re amped up about.

The new packaging will accentuate the necktie, which has always been a core part of who we are. The necktie symbolizes our journey from white collar to blue collar, where we realized it’s more important to love what you do than to be paid well for something you don’t enjoy. We will also use a predominantly white background with bold colors and patterns to distinguish individual beers. This new direction keeps our core identity, but allows us to be a bit more free and playful with new designs and beers moving forward.

We can’t wait to get these new cans into your grubby, beer-loving hands.

We’ve had an overwhelming response to our $100K in 100 Days initiative. To summarize:

We have set a goal to help organizations doing good work in our neighborhood, City, and State raise $100,000 in the first 100 days of operation at our new barrel-aging and souring facility, The Garage, set to open in September.

The application process has officially closed, but we have started scheduling events for some wonderful non-profits. We wanted to share the good work of these 19 organizations (and counting) that we will be donating our space, and beer, and time to. Click on an image to be taken to the organization’s website, or scroll down to read more on each organization. We’re looking forward to working with even more organizations in the coming months, so stay tuned!
